    forced labor was he jewish or did that happen to any one?
    Forced labour camps saw a vast variety of people persecuted.

    Many thanks to Jan for kindly sharing his family history with us.

    Jan, thank you for sharing your father's inspiring wartime history.

    Regarding your comment about him only claiming one medal and that in 1970, I noticed the two ribbons on his battledress and wondered what awards they are?

    Regards, Philip

    DrPMC - The ribbons he is wearing were identified for me by Tony (A.J. Zawadzki ) he told me they are the Cross if Valour and the Polish Army War Medal and above them is a ribbon for being Wounded in action.

    Krakow1 - he started with Zgr. Sosna, bat. Chrobry 1, only joining Chrobry 2 after the escape from Stare Miasto through Kanal.
