Handwritten application by Agnieszka Gollek to the Head Government Pleniopotentiary for Repatriation, with the request to begin efforts to free Andrzej Gollek, who in Feb. 1945 was stopped by Red Army soldiers and sent to Soviet labor camps.

In early 1945, in Upper Silesia soon after it was taken by Red Army forces, many acts of terror took place that are known today as the Upper Silesian Tragedy. Among these, most poignant was the deportation of several dozen Silesians into enslavement in the USSR (mainly in coal mining).
