A dangerous but heart-warming adventure in war-time Poland. Learn how the Polish people and the human race come out on top despite deadly dealings by the Nazis.

"Suddenly through the haze we saw a flight of 20 large planes in arrow formation at about 10,000 feet. As they came nearer we realised they were American Fortresses".

"We found a courtyard with steps leading to a cellar and decided this would be our hiding place, but we’d only been there for about half an hour when we heard footsteps in the yard and heard a loud voice say 'Englander, Aus'."
