This is the story of Polish children deported to Siberia by the USSR, who ended up in refugee camps in Africa during World War 2. Through an odyssey from Poland to Siberia, through the Middle East, Asia and Africa, their entire lives have been marked by memories of a journey that they still struggle to make sense of, but which the rest of the world has forgotten.

Produced in collaboration with Bunbury Films, co-producers of 2013 Oscar Short Documentary winner "The Lady In Number 6". For more information about this project, please contact memoryisourhomeland@gmail.com
