A medal group of a Home Army soldier, Bialystok District, Grajewo Oblast; corporal officer cadet Stefan Krzesicki "Kruk". According to the family, he was imprisoned in the Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen Nazi German Concentration Camps, where he was liberated by the Allies and remained in Great Britain. Research shows that two Stefanów Krasicki are included in the list of prisoners of concentration camps. Probably the same person, however, are incorrect information about the date of birth. The information shows that Krzesicki Stefan was detained by the Gestapo in Bialystok and imprisoned in KL Stutthof where he was a prisoner of number 33129 from March 24, 1944. The second source states that on April 15, 1945, Stefan Krzesicki was liberated from KL Bergen Belsen.
