Lost Town: Our family background is Polish, with my parents and their families having been deported on trains to Siberia during the Second World War. They originated from towns like Antonowka, Sarny, Rovno, Dabrowica all now incorporated into the Ukraine. Approximately 1.5 million Poles were deported from this region alone. I noticed that your map database did not contain my father's settlement (small farming community/town) called Antonin, which I believe was several kilometres away from their main town Dabrowica. I have no further stats as all their possessions were lost in the war. My parents have however, enormous detailed memories of their home towns and life in Poland (pre-war that is). I have also a book written about the Polish communities in this region with photographs, maps, lists of people etc. This may not be much to go on but I have just recalled my Father telling me previously that Antonin was bull-dozed by the invading Russians and turned into a Kolholtz or communal farm. It should still be recorded for it's historical significance, would you agree!. Regards,
