I was inspired by Chris’s story – particularly by the story of his mother Anna, who was forced to leave her home in Poland when she was only 4 years old – to write my own creative piece for Here and There entitled February, 1940.

My piece is a fictional retelling of the moment when Anna (in this story, named Kasia) and her family are told they must leave their farm in Poland, with no idea of when, or if, they will be allowed to return.
