Born in Poland in 1921 Janina Milek was transported with her family to Siberia in the freezing winter of 1940. She worked hard in the labour camps for nearly two years until the changing fortunes of the war offered relative freedom. There followed eight years as a refugee, in various parts of Africa and the Middle East. In 1950 Janina arrived in Western Australia, alone.
