Caught in the Crossfire is the story of Janina Pladek – a schoolgirl who witnessed the Nazi occupation of her country. It is a story of great and terrible suffering and yet out of the turmoil and chaos of warfare grows a compassion that extends beyond Poland to embrace suffering people elsewhere. This is a story of courage and hope.
And it is good to end this Remembrance week on a story like that… Suffering has the power to destroy but it need not destroy.
Lest we forget!
