The first is the Cross of Deported to Siberia, a state-awarded decoration of 2003, conferred to Polish citizens deported into the USSR (not only to Siberia), following the Soviet attack on Poland of September 17, 1939.

The second is a Cross of Merit of the Association of the Deported to Siberia, an organizational award.
