A magnificent reconstruction of Poland and her people from the Second World War to Solidarity

From the streets of Nazi-occupied Warsaw, through the lonely dreams of a little Polish boy growing up in Clapham in the fifties, to a candlelit vigil for Solidarity outside London’s Polish Embassy – this is the tragic story of Poland seen through the fortunes of a single family.

Jan and Anna Prawicki survived Hitler’s devastation of Warsaw, and fled, haunted by the past, to England. Through their own struggles, the memories of their parents and the developing lives and loves of their children, Jerzy and Ewa, we enter the terrors of war, occupation, repression and resistance, as individuals and a nation struggle for life and liberty.

‘... embraces the experience of two generations of Poles . . . An alluring subject, skilfully constructed’ Daily Telegraph
