Author's Note: "With the cessation of hostilities at the end of the war, the problems and anxieties of settling down in a foreign land and making a living dominated my everyday thinking and attention. But present always in the back of my mind were other thoughts which refused to be ignored. There was the promise I made, reluctantly perhaps, to a dying woman far away in snow-bound Yermak, and despite the pressures. of the new and demanding challenge of life for a Pole in post-war Britain, the compulsion to honour that promise never left me. When later, many of my English friends and acquaintances asked repeatedly, why, how, and by what means I came to Britain, the need to answer these questions reinforced the urge for me to tell my story in print. I felt that by so doing, I would meet the commitment of my promise and further, would pass on to my children, grand-children and others of their generation, the story of those years in Russia and the subsequent journey that brought us here. Accordingly, in the late 1950s I set about the task of writing this book. It took me three months to write and thirty years to publish. I decided to have the book printed and published in a self-publishing limited edition, because although the time factor does not affect the story since it is a personal record of actual events, it introduces an element of urgency. There are very few of us left who are still able to recall those dark days and suffering, and time is getting short if I am to fulfill my promise and "tell the World". -- Contents: Our Town; Time of Nights; Lost Home and Deportation; Journey to the Unknown; Death of a Child; Among the Kazachs [Kazakhs]; Winter of Despair; Rising Hope; "You Must Tell the World!"; Spring of Miracles; Promised Land; New Adventures; Sun: Sand and Desert; Holy Land: Life in Army School and University; In Europe Again; Settling in Great Britain - and the End of the Journey.
