Book description
This book is about Martin's Polish ancestors' experiences in slave labour camps during the First and Second World Wars and it is illustrated by fascinating sketches of eviction, deportation and life in those camps (courtesy of the Sikorsky Club, Glasgow) and photographs of Martin's family. Despite the harrowing subject, there is love, hope and humane touches in this beautiful book - an English / Polish bilingual personal account of one family's fight to stay alive, told from the heart, in the form of a long narrative poem. "The poem is a prayer, not only for Poland ('that most beguiling of emotional projections') but for all peoples and places in all times which have known displacement and suffering." Neal Ascherson

Despite the harrowing subject, there is love, hope and humane touches in this beautiful book - an English / Polish bilingual personal account of one family's fight to stay alive, told from the heart, in the form of a long narrative poem. "The poem is a prayer, not only for Poland ('that most beguiling of emotional projections') but for all peoples and places in all times which have known displacement and suffering." Poemat ten jest modlitw?, nie tylko za Polsk? ( ,,tej najbardziej z?udnej z uczuciowych projekcji''), ale za wszystkich ludzi oraz miejsca, które do?wiadczy?y przesiedle? i cierpienia... Niniejsza czu?a, ?arliwa i - dzi?ki starannemu t?umaczeniu Kasi Kokowskiej na j?zyk polski - dwuj?zyczna ksi??ka powinna znale?? si? na ka?dym stole, przy którym mowa jest o Polsce i tych odwa?nych, których ju? nie ma w?ród nas. (Neal Ascherson)
