“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.
