History of the project

The first stage of the project, completed by 2015, concerns Russian prisoners of war and internees who died in internment camps and military hospitals in Poland. Information obtained on the basis of archival sources is available in the project database. It includes information about 20 thousand deceased prisoners of war and internees.

In the next stage, the project will be extended with the data of prisoners of war and internees repatriated to Russia under a repatriation agreement concluded by virtue of the Treaty of Riga of 1921, as well as the internees who stayed in Poland.
