SS-Charlemagne soldier in Soviet lagier Krasnovodsk

Hi!,

I will given the opportunity to interview 97-year-old prof. Witold Kieżun.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Witold_Kieżun

Despite his age, he was a great mentor - a hero of the Warsaw Uprising, then arrested in 1945 by the Soviets and sent to Soviet labor camp in Krasnowodsk on the Caspian Sea. And now clue!
Here is what his secretary wrote: "There were 100 people from SS_Charlemagne Division in the camp, everyone was lost. Kieżun spoke a lot with them, because French is his second language. He will gladly tell about it”.

If you have any specific questions to the professor / do you know someone who may be interested in contacting the professor regarding SS-Charlemagne POW’s - please send me info on priv.

Greetings
Orlov
