Catchy subject, precise and at the same time pictorial language, attractive illustrations and two narrative languages — Polish and English. The series was inaugurated by the publication The first Soviet labour camp. Solovietsky Island (1920–1939)” by Wojciech Śleszyński, released in 2017. Seven more books were published in the following years.


“Little Sybir Stories ” is our answer to the questions: how to make people interested in historical topics? What to do so that history is not associated only with boring lessons at school, but becomes an inspiring field?

The series currently includes eight books:

  • “The first Soviet labour camp. Solovietsky Island (1920–1939)” by Wojciech Śleszyński
  • “The Great Wandering (1915—1921)” by Eugeniusz Mironowicz
  • “Well-known Poles in Siberia in the 19th” Century by Grzegorz Zackiewicz
  • “Undefeated Women” by Sylwia Szarejko
  • “18th to 20th Century Homecomings from Sybir” by Przemysław Borowik
  • “The Siberian Rush” by Tomasz Danilecki
  • “Sybir on Air” by Sylwia Szarejko
  • “The Polish Orphanage in Bolshaya Yerba” by Katarzyna Śliwowska

The publications include information on, among others Polish explorers of Siberia. The four latest books say, among others about the Polish Orphanage in Bolshaya Yerba or voluntary settlement in Siberia.

The publications are written in a light language, suitable both to start looking for traces of Sybir and to deepen the knowledge already possessed in this subject. The texts are decorated with attractive illustrations, and the colorful graphic design of the books immediately attracts the attention of the reader.
