Stanislawa “Stella” POKORNA (b 5/3/24) was my mother in law. I believe she was born in Bednarow
She and her mother, Urszula, were arrested by the Russians and sent to Siberia. She lied about her age to make sure was treated as an adult and could stay with her mother. (So her birth date may be shown differently in some records). They were liberated and went to Teheran where Stanislawa drove in the PSK.
She married Adam Marian Cieslik (b1916) in Italy in 1945 or 6.
They met during WW2 and fought with the allies.
They came to UK 1946 or 7 or 8
We have some contact with Stella’s family in Poland but we know nothing of Adam’s birthplace, family, military service other than we think he was a paratrooper and fought at Monte Cassino.
Information about Stanislawa’s family would be helpful but information about Adam would be most interesting
