Most people are familiar with the Nazi atrocities of World War II committed against the Jews. Far less commonly known, however, are the experiences of the Poles of Eastern Poland at the hands of the occupying Soviet army. Far From My Home, Never to Return: A Polish Child's WWII Memoir is a first-person account chronicling the dire peril and adversity endured and suffered by one of these Polish families through the eyes of a young Nadia Bogdaniec, who was only eight years old when the Soviets first arrived in her village in 1939. Shortly after the Soviets' arrival, over a million Poles were forcefully deported by the Soviets from Eastern Poland to various regions of the USSR, including Siberia, to be worked or starved to death in the Soviet labor camps. Most of them would never escape. This is a unique true story of hope and survival in the face of this utterly dire peril and extreme adversity.

About the Author:

Nadia Bogdaniec-Seluga was born on January 1, 1931 in a small village in eastern Poland called Łunin. Łunin was in a beautiful part of Poland known as "Polesie." Unfortunately, Polesie is no longer a part of Poland, but is now within the boundaries of western Belarus. Nadia and her family were deported in 1940 by the Soviets from their idyllic life in Polesie to work and starve in the soviet labor camps. They were lucky to finally manage to escape from the labor camps, but it was no easy journey. After leaving Siberia, they travelled through central Asia and Iran and eventually made it to the British Dominion of East Africa in Uganda, where they lived for a few years before finally moving back to the Western world sometime after the end of WWII. Sadly, however, they would never return to Poland. All the siblings, including Nadia, married and had children. They all now have grandchildren. Nadia, Marysia, and Janka are the only current surviving original members of the adversity detailed in Nadia's memoirs, Far From My Home, Never to Return: A Polish Child's WWII Memoir.
