Poland is an embodiment of the indomitability of the human spirit.
Human compassion and love overcomes the worst sort of circumstances, bridging the divide of religion, race, and country.
The Poles are a surprisingly resilient people, weathering adversity and powering through the storms of history.
I didn’t see this book as a failure of the class system, I saw it as a triumph over it.
The enmity between Germany and Poland and Russia and Poland isn’t a 20th century thing. It’s been going on for centuries.
Every person should read this book because darkness needs to have a light shined on it; it should be acknowledged and discussed and known.
This book was about what love and forgiveness can accomplish, about how it can rebuild. There’s good out there even within the depths of evil.
