List: Poles in Tehran 1942-43 (Polska Walcząca)

List with names and details of 10,321 Polish civilians arriving in Tehran, Persia (Iran) from the USSR after evacuation with Anders Army in 1942.

Originally published as a series of 24 weekly 4-page inserts in the Polish exile newspaper “Polska Walcząca” (“Poland Fighting”) in London, England, in the 1942 issues 30-51 and the 1943 issues 1-4. Details are provided of each person’s surname, name, birthdate, birthplace, and current location. These locations are primarily in Teheran, Iran or in Africa. They are organised in alphabetical order by last name, though within each letter series the names are often out of order, so an entire alphabetical section should be reviewed to find a specific name.

The original documents are located in the “Polska Walcząca” collection in the Polish Library, POSK Polish Cultural Centre in London, at: 238-246 King Street, London England W6 ORF. Tel +44 (0)20-8741-7724. E-mail: bibliotekapolska@posklibrary.fsnet.co.uk

Copies were made available by Mr Tadeusz Dobrostanski of Melbourne, Australia and Mrs Wieslawa Kleszko, Secretary of the “Koło Indian” (Society of Polish Exiles in India) of London, England, and were digitized by Janusz Zajączkowski of London.
