About this title


This is a collection of short stories based on real people's lives and experiences as immigrants coming from Poland to Canada after WW2. A few of the stories are of well known people - like Tadeusz Brzezinski (father of Zbigniew Brzezinski), whose extraordinary life is presented and can be read with great interest. A few people are well known in Canada such as Peter Gzowski, a relative of Sir Casimir Gzowski, or Marion Andre, Holocaust survivor. Some stories are very funny, some sad, some people are achievers, some are losers.

The book was published in Polish (title Kanada, Kanada...) in Poland and in English in Canada.
