What a fascinating story of a Polish man and his life through his years and experiences to his last years in the UK. His drawings were more personal then photographs in describing through both visual and mental emages of that time he lived through.
pictures are nice, but they probably tried to make story more dramatic by mentioning Katyn that had nothing to do with this story. I wonder why there are so many stories of Polish Jews in the press, instead of Polish Poles or Polish Ukrainians... I guess being Jewish helps to print a story since it follows a certain stereotype. If somebody was Polish from Silesia or Ukrainian born in Poland - the story would be too complex or not black-white, but Jewish European stories are always so convincingly victim only stories.
I am glad that Karl found an interesting Danish musician story, who came back to Poland although he also has an Ukrainian blood.
This was a Polish story and not a typical Jewish one! This man didn't stay in Palestine as a jew. He was a Polish soldier which was transported to Siberia, and made the long journey many Ronan-Catholic Poles did. He fought in. Monte Casino like a Polish-American uncle of mine. Yes, this man was a Polish jew, but his war story was Polish, because he fought in the Polish army in the West. He was Polish and he happened to be jewish. My interest was in the Polish story and in his excellent drawings.
