From: Krzysztof Kedzierski

I am looking for Tadeusz (Tadeo) Kedzierski, who died in the Province of Mendoza, Argentina.
I am the son of Edward Kedzierski, brother of Tadeusz Kedzierski who emigrated to Mendoza and there he died.
He was born in Wysokie, near Krasnystaw in Lubelskie (Lublinia).
He fought in the aviation unities in England and in Italy in Montecassino. There he met Gina, a nurse, later his wife.
Probably, he was co-founder, director and professor at the Regional School of Civil Aviation in Mendoza "Federico Zaochi"
(methereology ?) He became Argentinian citizen. He left his family in Poland because of the war. Tadeusz never came back to his homeland.
It seems that he died with out having children. I look for your help in order to find his grave in the cemetery, pictures o anything that could help me.
Tadeusz Kedzierski, was the son of Józef and Marianna Prezyn. He probably died in 1958 - 1968.
I live in Cracow and his sisters in Wysokie.
Thanks a lot

Krzysztof Kedzierski (nephew)

From: "Claudio Kalicinski"
Hello, I am Claudio Kalicinski grandson of a polish army officer Mieczyslaw Kalicinski born at Lazy near Krakow. I do not know if you speak Spanish I will write in English just in case but I prefer Spanish (sadly, I do not speak polish). My father saw your thread at the polish-heroes remembrance center and I decided to ask about your uncle to my father-in-law, who is an Argentinean air force officer in charge of the control tower of the Mendoza airport, because he told me stories about the Federico Zaochi civil aviation school. He asked to former employees of the Airport, many of them ex-students of the school and some professors, about your uncle and this is the information that he and I collected:
1- The Federico Zaochi civil aviation school was an institute created to form not only meteorologists, but also air controllers, radar operators, etc. Ex-members of the school confirmed that your uncle was co-founder, director and professor there. The school still exists today but just as an ordinary high (technical) school not related with aviation.
2- He joined the Argentinean air force as a civil personnel an occupying the position of chief of weather forecast at Mendoza airport for several years until his dead.
3- They don't remember exactly the date of his dead but they think it was around 1965-1967. I think it will difficult to find his grave because our law states that a person can only remain on the "ground" for 10 years. After that, the mortal remains go to the crematorium and then to a funerary urn or to a special depot for bones (osario).
4- I confirmed that they do not had kids, his wife Gina is probably dead also. An old friend of Tadeo, an Air Force Brigadier (General), lost contact with her around the year 2001. He is too old to remember more but he told me that Gina has a brother: Dario ?Fichiara? Who still is alive and has a repair shop in a near city (Godoy Cruz) I will try to find him.
5- He lived in a house not far from mine but the house does not exist anymore because the government, for the construction of a highway, expropriated it.
6- In the later years of his life he become the "weather man" of the local TV channel but he had some problems with the Spanish so he preferred to stay behind the cameras and elaborate the weather forecast that was read by a local meteorologist.

The Tadeo professional skills (everybody called him this way because they can't pronounce his surname) were kept in great respect between his colleagues but they remember even more his kindness.  When I asked about him, the most common answer was: Oh yes, he was good guy!  It seems that he was a great meteorologist but he was an even better person. I hope this information is useful for you.
Best regards,

Claudio F. Kalicinski

I have de pleasure to write you in order to ask your help to contact me with family members from my mother´s side.
Since I consider my mother a heroe, (she left Poland to survive, and is admirable how she fought to form a family), she died with a hope: to know what happened to her family in Warsaw.
Best regards
