About the Book

Remnants of the Polish Home Army re-formed to counter brutal Soviet repressions. In July 1945, more than 7,000 HA freedom fighters were arrested in the northeastern Augustów region and held in barns, pigsties and warehouses where they were beaten and tortured. Two thousand of them were never seen again—their whereabouts remain a mystery. Seventy-five years later, their relatives still search for answers and the location of their mass burial. This book examines the fateful events of the Augustów Roundup (a.k.a. “little Katyn”) through eyewitness testimonies.
