In some of the photographs you can see General Jozef Wiatr, General Zygmunt Bohusz Szyszko and General Wladyslaw Anders.
Lieutenant-General Władysław Anders CB (11 August 1892 – 12 May 1970) was a General in the Polish Army and later in life a politician with the Polish government-in-exile in London.
 
Anders Army

After the March-April arrival in Iran of the first evacuation wave, more military and civilian men, women and children were transferred later that summer, to the end of August, again by ship and by the overland route from Ashkhabad, Turkmenistan (then part of the USSR) to the railhead in Mashhad, Iran. As such, the unit passed from the Soviet control to that of the British government, and as the Polish Second Corps joined the Polish Armed Forces in the West. About 41 000 combatants and 74 000 civilians - Polish citizens - were able to leave the USSR with the Anders Army, joining the British High Command in the Middle East, traveling through Iran, Iraq and Palestine.

When the Anders Army reached the latter, most (but not all) of the 4000 Jewish soldiers deserted the formation and joined the veteran settlement there. After some time the mass desertion of the Jewish soldiers was called the "Anders Aliyah

Despite calls from British authorities, the Polish army had not pursued Jewish deserters, except for a few smokescreen actions.

The Polish Jews in the Anders Army had additional goals apart from fighting the Nazis. When the Anders Army left the Soviet Union on its journey towards the Middle East, families of the soldiers and groups of Jewish children, war orphans, joined the Jewish soldiers. After arriving in Tehran, Iran, the children were transferred into the hands of the emissaries who brought them to Palestine as the "Tehran Children".

The soldiers who deserted the Anders Army, thanks to their army expertise, contributed to the defense of the Jewish settlement in Palestine, and later on also fulfilled the important role of laying down the foundations of the Israel Defense Forces.

In the year 2006 a memorial to the Anders Army was erected in the orthodox cemetery on Mount Zion in Jerusalem.
