Hi, my name is Kasha, and I am new here. I came on, because I have 3 relatives who all fought in the Polish Underground during the Warsaw Uprising. My mother was Maria Przytula aka Maryna or Marina or Marynka. She was known as the "heart and soul of Poland", and is featured heavily in the Warsaw Uprising Museum. She was a nurse, a leader of a brigade, and a friend to all. I think she also delivered underground messages as well. She also was decorated with the Virtuti Militari. She was in 3 camps, Stalag16, Bergen Belsen, and one other. My grandfather was Francesk Pryztuli, and he was a career military officer, that fought in both world wars. He also was decorated with the Virtuti. He ended up in Brazil after the war. We wonder if we have cousins there too. My aunt Barbara also fought in the resistance, but I don't what she did exactly. She settled in Maccesfield, Cheshire, UK and married in 1948. Her married was Gorsicka. We don't know much else about her, and would like to find out if she had kids, and where they are today. She died in 1992. We know nothing about my uncle Zygmunt or my grandmother Eugenia. My mother passed away from cancer in 1989. My older sister has been doing research, but only knows things up till the end of the war. Now, we want to find out what happened after the war. My mother never spoke of her family. In fact, she told us they were all dead. So, we didn't know anything, until a couple of years ago, when my older sister went to Warsaw, and went to the Uprising Museum. Then we started to connect the dots. Personally, this makes me so sad that I never got to meet my family. I would have LOVED to have known them. I even was in school between 1979-84 in the UK, and never knew I had an aunt or cousins or anything. How sad is that? So please, if anybody knows anything, or any of this sounds even the least bit familiar, please send info my way. We are desperate. I have 3 siblings, two sisters, and a half brother. I also have a niece and a nephew. What a great gift this would be to all of us to now we do have family still. Our connection to our mother would still live on. Please help. I sure do miss my mama.
