The Polish submarines

Some items from the interned Polish submarines' crew. Since their base in Poland was occupied by the Germans they couldn't return home.

They couldn't reach the UK so they had to go to Sweden instead. At the beginning the crew was interned in Vaxholm, but later moved to Mariefred.

The treatment fo the crew was not always the best. A blot in Swedish WWII history.

Read more in number 64 of MPT (in Swedish).
