We are a group of people passionate about history, memory, and humanity, coming from diverse backgrounds from around the world. Separately we have pursued these passions through academic projects, community outreach, media and the arts. Now we come together to support a long-awaited project: An award-winning journalist’s journey in the footsteps of the thousands who trekked to freedom from Siberia to Iran during WWII.

This story of human perseverance and strength is the one of the men, women, and children who had been exiled and liberated from the Soviet labour camps. Their endless hope and courage is an inspiring testimonial to the power of love, sharing, and kindness in face of suffering and hardships; a testimonial that you will help produce and share with generations to come by supporting our project.

This important project has received support and funding from the Polish press, Institute for Culture from Paris, Institute for National Remembrance of Poland and a number of individual supporters from all over the world. However, we still need 6,000 to cover basic costs. We therefore turn to you to help make this time sensitive mission a reality.

We thank you for your support! The detailed description is placed here :
