    Hi Itakdalej

    Thanks for posting these facinating images. Having lost a great uncle at Katyn from Kozielsk camp I really appreciate the significance of these artifacts. Curious as to how you obtained these items because I am looking to obtain images of my uncle's identification recovered from Katyn and documented in LISTA KATYNSKA by Adam Moszynski. Any help or suggestions you can offer would be very much appreciated. You can contact me privately if you like.

    Regards
    Chris..........

    Chris, if you would like to pm me your uncle's name and rank I will see what I can find out.
    The artifacts that I have came from families of the victims. They were preserved for 60 plus years and in some cases wifes still refusing to believe that husbands were dead and until their dying day believing that their beloved husbands would come home.
    I presume that you are refering to things that were found with the remains and what have helped to id the victims, if so that is a story in itself, one I will post soon as time permits.

    This picture was the only one left in the family and was given to us by a descendant.
    The bio is from book "Miednoje" Ksiega Cmentarna.
    Police Vice Chief Wiktor Jozef Bibillo, volunteer in 1920 russian war, wounded, then he became police officer and police Chief. His family was sent to work camp in Northern russia, got repatriated to Poland in 1945. That they brought this picture of him with them is a miracle. Usually when arrested and sent to camps they were only given few minutes, sometimes no minutes to grab what they could.
