Commemoration of the 81st Anniversary of the Deportations from Kresy to Siberia

The worldwide circumstances in 2020 and 2021 have prevented the anniversary being commemorated as in past years with a meeting of friends and supporters in London.  Instead it took place on the internet via Zoom on Saturday 6 February 2021.  This departure enabled connection with friends and supporters not only within reach of London but across the UK, Europe and the world, able for the first time to share together a varied programme.

A recording of the event is now available for viewing on YouTube using the following link:-
