Oleszkiewicz and Wesolowski families


Our thanks to Liz Kissane (born Elzunia Oleszkiewicz) for supplying these photographs.


These two families lived next door to each other at Site 3. One of the huts is the last hut remaining of the Polish Hostel.

The following photos supplied by Krystyna Gabrys (nee Oleszkiewicz)


Although I think life was quite tough for the adults, for us children Marsworth was a wonderful place to grow up, a carefree, special existence, almost magical, which has very special memories for all those who grew up at the Polish camp. We loved it and often come back to visit.
