Salted Herring


As a result of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact signed between the Soviets and Nazi Germany on the 23rd August, 1939, the Germans invaded Poland from the west and the Red Army invaded Poland from the east. The Soviets quickly annexed its newly held territory and hundreds of thousands of Polish people were rounded up from the area and sent to Siberia and other remote parts of the USSR.

This story is told through the young eyes of Tadek (Tadeusz Andruszkiewicz), who at the age of 10 was taken to Siberia and used as forced labour.
With the threat of starvation and death ever present, this is a story of survival in the harshest conditions – and a tribute to many who did not survive.
