Among the great tragedies that befell Poland during World War II was the forced deportation of its citizens by the Soviet Union during the first Soviet occupation of that country between 1939 and 1941. This is the story of that brutal Soviet ethnic cleansing campaign told in the words of some of the survivors. It is an unforgettable human drama of excruciating martyrdom in the Gulag. For example, one witness reports: ""A young woman who had given birth on the train threw herself and her newborn under the wheels of an approaching train."" Survivors also tell the story of events after the ""amnesty."" ""Our suffering is simply indescribable."" wrote the Milewski family. Details are also given on the countries that extended a helping hand to the exiles in their hour of need.
