Description
 
The Winner of the 1995 Cultural Achievement Award from the American Council for Polish Culture.

Forced to endure occupation by both the Soviets and the Nazis, the author s family also faced the terror of Ukrainian ethnic cleansing by nationalist forces. The horror of the Nazi forced-labor camps wherein millions of Europeans were enslaved by the Third Reich is vividly recounted, as is the familys time in a displaced person (DP) camp. The author s family along with hundreds of thousands of refugees, unable or unwilling to return to their countries of origin, waited for their opportunity to emigrate in these camps under the American Occupation Forces. Piotrowski also details their subsequent immigration to America. The author based his research on family memories and recorded accounts; U.S. interviews and European published oral histories; informal discussions; published English, Polish, Ukrainian, German, and Russian sources; U.N. documents and Nuremberg testimonies; and recent information from Warsaw.

A native of Wolyn, Tadeusz Piotrowski and his family lived under both the Soviet and the German occupations of Poland's eastern territories until August 1943. He is a professor of sociology at the University of New Hampshire at Manchester, where he received the Outstanding Associate Professor Award for 1996-1997. Piotrowski won the 1998 Literary Award from the Polish Socio-Cultural Centre of the Polish Library in London and the 1995 Cultural Achievement Award from the American Council for Polish Culture.
