If I had to make my rachunek sumienia (confession), I could say, with a very clear conscience, that the balance would be in my favour. I have never tried to make other people feel small because they were wrong... Witold Kasicki was born in a just-free Poland in 1920 after a century of oppression and occupation. Nineteen years of his life were devoted to building the dream of Poland, a dream which was to be destroyed by the German invasion in 1939. This led him, inescapably, to endure a terrible period of his life in concentration camps. Eventually he was sent to Dachau from where he and his fellow prisoners were liberated. History repeats itself... We don't want to know of it, but unfortunately it happens, and it will happen again in the future. The struggle to retain his dignity carried him through the war and concentration camps, and so through the British Army of the Rhine. England, where he eventually settled, brought more challenges for him and for his family. Did he succeed? Follow his life story, his happy memories and his sad remembrances, and understand from Witold the lessons which all of us should learn.
