Life in Three dimensions is evidence of a simple fact: that Australia benefitted enormously from the post-war immigration program. The 'reffos' brought to Australia a wealth of experience and technical skills and a broadening of Australia's cultural base. Many of them had astonishing tales of their experiences during the Nazi occupation of their homelands. In Parry's case, the details come out almost casually in his fast moving and wry account of those chaotic years. It was he who carried to the Russians, hidden in a fountain pen, a microfilm with full details of the German plans for their invasion of Russia in 1941, three weeks before it happened. This was the last contact between the Polish resistance and the Russians before the storm broke, and, though Stalin ordered that it be ignored, it was important enough to be mentioned in Marshall Zhukov's memoirs. Parry's account of his life in Australia includes a personal touch to the Petrov story - one which gets Menzies off the hook, but causes one to doubt the quality of the Australian security services at the time. Includes a section with photographs.
