Absolutely absorbing ... well written and such captivating detail. Touches on so many issues with childhood and how important it is for adults to take care of their children, and when they can't that others are there to step in and take on responsibility and restore faith in desperately displaced and damaged souls. My heart goes out to all those from Poland who's country has had to endure so much ....

Picking away at this book -- alongside of The story of a life. So many children in Poland suffered. I actually met this author who helped 380,000 Polish children escape the Nazi's. He's in his nineties now. As a Franciscan in Poland his superior was Maximillan Kolbe who gave his life at Auschwitz.
