The Long Walk

Follow a group of  as they retrace the 8,000 mile slog of cavalry
officer Slavomir Rawicz. Rawicz, whose famous book,
The Long Walk, detailed his
capture by the Red Army in 1939 during the German-Soviet partition of Poland. He was sent to the Siberian Gulag along
with a group of Poles, Finns, Ukranians, Czechs, Greeks, as well as several English, French, and Americans caught up in
the fighting.  The story details how he and six others escaped a labor camp in Yakutsk clawed their way across
thousands of miles south to British India, where Rawicz reenlisted in the Polish army and fought against the Germans.
The expedition which got underway in September, retraces Rawicz steps from Moscow to Siberia, then through Mongolia,
China, Tibet and India. Along they way thr group is documenting with photos and journal entries. Whiile a bit sparse
now, the site promises a full multimedia tour when the trip ends in the first months of 2005.
