Remembrance Week… Caught in the Crossfire

9781857921496So much of what civilians remember from conflict is how little they were in control, how they were caught up in events that just seemed to happen.

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!
