We left the city of Lwow- without giving anyone our present address, for security reasons only. At this time Benio was with mother in the village Polana and from there the Russians took him to a camp in Siberia. Hunger, terrible weather and hard work broke him. He died there.

God bless them all. I often think of Benio, lying lonely in his grave in the alien soil of the Soviet Union. In the last moments of his life among these beastly criminals. I console myself and believe that our grandmother ...
