The Sarmatian Review (January 2005):
"The book is ideally suited for children, and it belongs to
a growing body of memoirs of Polish survivors who managed
to emerge alive from the Second World War, only to be thrown
into the pit of Communism for fifty years following the war."
Danuta Zamojska Hutchins, a retired professor of Slavic languages,
was born during the Second World War in Warsaw, Poland, where she
lived until 1962. She experienced the ravages of Nazi occupation,
their reprisals for the Warsaw Uprising of 1944 and Poland's fall
to communism after its liberation by the Soviet Army.
Mrs. Zamojska will speak on the connections between her personal
memories of war and her view of international events. Copies of her
book will be available.
The meeting will be conducted in Polish and is free and open to
