About the Photo :It is of Sam Semiotas and unknown child circa early 1950’s.  I would say it was Augustinus, Elana and Skirmantas Semiotas who lived at the camp in 1952-1953.

Sam’s sister Joanne Heywood seems to think the family were in the camp for about a year. Sam never talked about that time in his life as he was only about 3 or 4. I guess he may not have remembered it.
