28th September

Irena Kossakowski, author and artist

Irena Kossakowski will talk about her debut book A Homeland Denied which follows the horrific journey of Waclaw Kossakowski, a young Warsaw University student whose peaceful life was changed dramatically and with far reaching consequences that fateful day of 1st September, 1939. From imprisonment in the notorious Kozelsk prison to the forced labour camp in the Siberian Arctic Circle, this dramatic and poignant story is recounted in vivid detail and documents a tragic period in the history of the Polish people in Europe.
