Boy from the East: Memoirs of a Polish/Kreminski, Pet/Paper/0646943553/S006-B
Historians call them the Bloodlands.
From the horrors of Eastern Europe in 1945, the epicentre of World War II – the greatest cataclysm the world has ever known, the author was taken to the West and on to Australia. He adapted to German, French and Australian cultures and changes to his name; but later would come medical practice in New Guinea, heartbreak, and eventually an emotional return to his roots.
Dedicated to all refugees, this book “is a very personal, honest piece of writing, with a huge amount of fascinating detail which anchors it deeply in reality – so that there is never a feeling that it is ‘made up’ or exaggerated for effect”.
