1942 Polish Evacuation To New Zealand

In September 2017, Trust Chair, Gordon Noble-Campbell travelled to Poland to join the 75th anniversary of Anders’ Army’s evacuation from the USSR to Persia (now Iran). The evacuation involved the escape of over 100,000 Polish citizens (many women and children) from the clutches of Stalinism in Siberia, through Soviet Central Asia and the Middle East to safety, with some arriving in Wellington, New Zealand in 1944.

While in Warsaw, Gordon spoke with Radio New Zealand’s Kim Hill on the "Saturday Morning" programme. You can listen to a recording of Kim's interview with Gordon, using the media player below.
