Deportation Lists

Karta - Indeks Represjonowanych

This invaluable database has details of many of the deported in the 1940s to Russia / Siberia.

Note that you need to include Polish characters when searching – i.e. ą, ę, ł, ń, ó, ś, ż, ź.

Once you’ve identified a location of deportation, you can enter the place of deportation in the search to obtain a list of all the deported to that location. This can be very helpful when searching 'memoires' of the deported.

The database is available here.

Polska Walczaca
Between 1943 and 1944, the Polska Walczaca newspaper published various lists of the deported. They contain names, addresses, birth dates etc. Each list is different and it’s worth searching each of them.
These files are very large, so will take some time to download, but can be searched once downloaded.
