Summary

Poland's role in World War II has yet to be fully understood in the West. This text provides an insight into the conflict from the view of a young Polish girl. Anna Dadlez recounts her true-life tale of wandering amid the aftermath of war on her journeys from Poland through to post-war Britain.
