Map showing where Krystyna Szopis came from

Were these set up by Polish people?

They were set up by Polish people. So by the time I came to Lebanon I was already transferred to a grammar school and I managed to do three years there and in 'forty-seven ... sometime in June/July. In July we were told that we were going to England. We went through Egypt where my mum found her sister, her younger sister and her husband. We stayed with them so we were not moved immediately. We stayed with them on the camp for all of it was camps, if not army camps civilian camps, for about a month or so outside of Port Said and then in 'forty-seven September/October probably we came to England.
