War Orphans from Poland (via Siberia and Africa) in Canada

I wasn't aware of the numbers of war orphans in Canada from Poland by way of Siberia and Africa. Their journey is one chronicled in the book, Stolen Childhood: A Saga of Polish War Children by Lucjan Krolikowski. These 123 children arrived in Montreal in 1949, though thousands more remained in Africa. To learn more, please visit the Montreal Gazette article by clicking here.

My thanks to my sister who saw this article and pointed it out to me.
