    It is remarkable that those few pictures that were taken survived given the risks "partisans" in them faced of being identified by the various enemies of the Polish resistance movement you mentioned earlier!

    Yes, indeed. In its height the 27th Division numbered about 6500 men, they were surrounded by Germans twice, some battalions decimated, then they had to lay down weapons and officers most of them went into soviet captivity. And if You think about it, how many people carried a camera with them? How many had one? then there is a question of developing the film, the film roll surviving, etc. It is remarkable indeed.

    My grandmother was born and lived Wlodzimierz Wolynski until 1943, when UPA started moving against Poles. She then moved to Luck. Many of her childhood / school friends ended up in 27th AK. I have albums full of photos from that period as well as pre-war ones. Once all my items are unpacked, I will post them. There is few good books about Wolyn and AK in Polish.

    Many people hid the photos and also movement of people from Kresy to the former Reich lands, helped people blend in. My dad's uncle was from Stanislawow (Ivano-Frankowsk today) and joined AK and "ended up" in southern Poland in 1946.

    My personal favourite:

    "Red nights" by Henryk Cybulski, co-written with Henryk Pajak.
    Henryk Cybulski was a forrester in Wolyn,also an athlete, a runner, arrested by soviets in winter on 1940 and sent to northern work camp, escaped on foot in the spring 1940, for eight weeks doing about 50 to 60 kilometers a day made it back to Kiwerce, Wolyn. Later he became a commandant of a polish base in Przebraze where about 25 thousand people who escaped from the murdering ukrainian rabble lived and fought UPA off succesfully.
    One of a few that actually escaped succesfully from soviet northern work camps.
