A TRIP TO NOWHERE

Historical Introduction by Martha Golubiec, UW PSEC

At Kane Hall, Room 210, on the UW Campus

“A Trip to Nowhere” is 30 minute documentary film written, directed and illustrated by Shannon Hart-Reed and produced by Grazyna Balut Ostrom and Martha Golubiec. The Executive Producer is Polish Home Ladies Auxiliary in Seattle.

In this animated film, a dynamic group of elderly Seattle women tackle their tragic childhoods by shedding light on the untold stories of the forced deportation of over a million Polish women and children to Siberian labor camps by the Soviet Union during WWII. Hundreds of thousands died within their first year of captivity. A fascinating and inspiring tale of survival, the film brings this tragic and secret part of the WWII history to the forefront through the stories of those who were rescued by Gen. Wladyslaw Anders.
