A POLISH HISTORICAL LINK WITH JALAL-ABAD
I was born before World War II in Futor Koscielny to the east of Berezno Wolynskie. At that time my father was the forester of the parochial forests belonging to the Catholic church in Rudnia Potasznia. In 1939 its pastor was Fr. Juliusz Janusz. My mother, Leontyna came from the Bronowicki family. I was the youngest of three children. That year, our family was arrested by Soviet authorities. We were given an hour to pack and then driven to a school building in Bialashovka (2 km from our village). There we waited for our next transport (from which our grandmother Aniela ran away).
