This is a continuation of the story we started in Episode 46.
In order to answer the quesion: What do Poles have to do with Iran, India and Africa – when and how did they find themselves there?, POLcast talked with a person who went through this experience – Irene Tomaszewski from Ottawa, whom POLcast listeners know from our previous conversation about Cosmopolitan Review (CR) online magazine in Episode 6. Irene Tomaszewski is a writer and editor of CR. She is the co-author, with Tecia Werbowski, of “Codename Żegota: The Most Dangerous Conspiracy in Occupied Europe,” published by Praeger in 2010, and translator /editor of “Inside a Gestapo Prison: The Letters of Krystyna Wituska” published by Wayne State University Press in 2005.
On this story page, accompanying Part 1 of the interview (the Soviet Union, Persia, and India), you can find many links and information.
