Hi I was born in the camp and lived there until I was 5. I have 2 older sisters who remember much of what life was like. Indeed I have a picture of my mother and children outside the nissan hut we lived in. It had been a base for a unit of the French army before being used as a resettlement camp for Polish refugees. Many of the families were later resettled (1955) in Anlaby just 2/3 miles away. I remember many of the families. I have been trying for many years to find more details but without much success. However, if you get in touch with more specific questions I or other members of my family may be able to help.
My Fathers first wife Olga Job and her daughter Krystyna lived at the camp in 1946/47. Olga married my Father at the registry office in Holderness and we have no further information relating to Olga as unfortunately she died 1952 and my Father was understandably not keen to provide any details of his first wife as me married my Mother several years later. We do however have the name of the people who witnessed the wedding Alexsander Garbera . We also know that Krystyna was baptised at the camp on 1st December 1946 the witnesses were Katarzyna Mroczek and Aleksander Garbera , the priest was Rev Czeslaw Kulikowski. Olga and my father Roman Holynski moved to a PRC at Helmsley in North Yorks , as far as I am aware my father never lived at the Camp at Carr Lane as he came to the UK 6 months prior to Olga.
If there is any information it would be a great help. Kelvin Holynski
Aleksander Garbera was my father. Unfortunately he died on 27 July 2017, aged 99. Any knowledge of the events you describe have gone to the grave with him. Even at his age he still had a good memory of past events so he may well have been able to help you. Sorry, but there is no other way I can help. However, in my continued research in to the camp if I do come across any records that may be of use I will certainly let you know.
