Grisly work

At Bykovnia in the Ukraine, workers continue to exhume the skeletal remains of 3,500 Polish prisoners murdered on Stalin's orders in the spring of 1940. Among them was Colonel Kazimierz Deszberg, the father of a friend who herself was sent as a six-year-old "counter revolutionary" to exile on the steppes of Kazakhstan at about the same time. I tell the colonel's story in A Death in the Forest and the daughter's in The Sky Was Green, each a 99-cent download from Blue skies! -- Dan Ford
