A brief but moving biography of two people, one from Lwow, the other from Warsaw, caught up in the cataclysmic events of the first half of the twentieth century in Eastern Europe.Wanda, from Lwow, of Armenian and Polish descent, became a German. Torn from her roots, she arrived in Australia with her husband Zygmunt in 1950. She would never see her family or her homeland again.Zygmunt, from Warsaw, was a deeply patriotic Pole, active in the re-establishment of his country before WW2. He survived imprisonment by the Soviets and the Nazis and fought in the hell that was the Warsaw Uprising of 1944. By 1949 he was a lieutenant in the American Army but decided to migrate to Australia. He could however never forget his first true love: Weronika Romanowska.
