Ksysia 25 | 430 1 Dec 2009 / #151I think that there is a mistake here going on and on. Citizen is not the same as national. You can be an ethnic Tatar and a Polish Citizen. Right?My one Great Grandfather, last name Sprinz, had sat the war out in an Oflag. He was a Polish Citizen and a foreigner, married to a Polish lady. He had not seen a day of fighting I'm told. His daughter was a sanitariuszka, and she carried ammo for the Polish AK (Armia Krajowa), she's mentioned in 'W poszumie lasow koneckich'.On my BF's side, his Grandpa was conscripted by the Soviets and has a medal for battle wounds (he never shows it). Somebody of their family were in AK (Afrika Korps). Most were smugglers.Life is never easy, eh?What about Kleeberg and Haller, Polish Citizens and Military Officers - of German extraction? They are great heroes to me.
