Testimony by Bolesław Trojanowski’s widow, aged  96 years and her two daughters living in Manchester.

There were 18 settlers in the Horka settlement. There was no school, children had to go to a Belorussian village two kilometres from the settlement. It was a school for children up to a fourth class, older children went to Zaostrowierz, four kilometres away. A church was located in Płaskowicze, also four kilometres away. In the settlement, there was a Village Housewives Association and a Regional Agricultural Association.

The Brzozowski and Zaliwako-Zalewski families also lived In the Horka settlement.
