Chronicles of Terror volume 9 Soviet repression in Poland’s Eastern Borderlands 1939-1941
The 9th volume of the "Chronicles of Terror" series is entirely devoted to the fates of civilian victims of the Soviet occupation of Polish Eastern Borderlands in the years 1939–1941.
The selected testimonies from among those gathered by the Historical Division and the Documents Bureau of the Polish II Corps cover all main methods of repression employed against Polish citizens in the Soviet Union. The witnesses describe the conditions of mass deportations, arrests, interrogations and tortures, as well as their experiences from the sites of exile or forced labor – camps and special settlements from across the Soviet empire.
These personal accounts, memories and testimonies paint a fascinating picture of the Polish citizens' confrontation with the Stalinist totalitarian regime in the period between 17 September 1939 and the creation of the Anders' Army in 1941.
