My grandfather, father and uncle were deported from Eastern Poland to Siberia in early 1940. The [Communist secret police] NKVD arrived at 4am and gave my grandfather 30 minutes to pack for "a journey". "Where are we going?" "You'll find out soon enough," was the reply. Amazingly he managed to get the Soviets to load a Plumb hatchet onto the cattle track that was to be his and his sons' home for two weeks. This hatchet together with a sharpening stone, came to save their lives, as he managed to convert the floorboards of the cattle car into kindling for use in the camp in exchange for food. A trunk, with the hatchet, originally bought in Paris in 1938, finally made it back when I moved to Maine from London in 1990, it having travelled with my grandfather through Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Palestine and Egypt as he moved with the Polish Core of the Eighth Army. A much-travelled heirloom.View attachment 45695
