On the political scene, there were important developments. Since the Germans had attacked Russia, the Soviets joined the allies in their struggle against the Nazis. As a result of this, sometime by the end of July 1941, the Soviet papers announced that they had started talks with the Polish Government-in-Exile, in London and, on the basis of these talks, all Poles who were either exiled like us or were arrested and found themselves in the Soviet Union would be granted amnesty.
Kolkhoz "Pravda" (in Russian "pravda" means truth) was in the region of Naukat which was located at the foothills of the Pamir Mountains, near to the Chinese border. It was located in a valley and one could see the snow-covered mountains, maybe five kilometers away.
