Trails of Polish Hope
WW2 left the Poles scattered across many continents. Soldiers and civilians alike covered hundreds of kilometres in the Soviet Union, Middle East and Western Europe. They marched on hoping to return to a free country.
In the consciousness of the West, World War II is seen as a struggle between the forces of Good and the forces of Evil, where the noble West, with the help of the Red Army, overcomes inhuman ideology. The main goal is to save the Jews from the Holocaust, perpetrated by the „Nazis”, in cooperation with local collaborators, raised in a primitive culture filled with anti-Semitism. This legend has little to do with the truth.
