Polish exiles who escaped Siberia
One example is Maurycy Bieniowski
But there were many others:Every attempt to break away from the Siberian mat has bordered on the madness. And yet such accidents happened more often, especially in the nineteenth century. It is confirmed by the fascinating book of Wiktoria Sliwowska "Siberian Escapes". The adventurous escape of Maurycy Beniowski, a Bar Confederate, is described in his own memoirs, which contributed to his legend in the days of Romanticism. However, there were many other escapes, most often unsuccessful, but testifying to the anxiety of the Poles, above all, about the disagreement over tsarist judgments and repression.
