Waiting for minimum critic reviews


How does a country become a brave Nation?Adam Rolands would say that it can be through the experience of a ‘bleeding’ heart and by being ‘downtrodden and without hope’. It certainly is in the case of Poland, of which country’s sad history this is an interesting treatment.Tracing the history of the country through a century and more, he vividly shows us, through a family dynasty, what Poland experienced and how it fought for dignity and hope, often against appalling odds.Most of us know something of the tragic Nazi and Soviet occupation, reducing most of those surviving those years to the rank of dehumanised slaves. However, what Adam Rolands does in this unusual and remarkable book is to take the reader also through the less famous, but equally significant, events in the lives of the Polovski family.Also, interestingly, he manages to find parallels with the Ulysses/Odysseus myth of Homer, too.
