Many readily collaborated with the Nazis during the war, and there were even those who killed many survivors after the war.

    This book documents a harrowing experience one Polish man who has lost everything and is surrounded by dispair and destruction. Although his environment has become hostile and dangerous, he continues with his life and this is where the story comes into its own. The Polish Patriot takes the reader in the world of Nazi occupied Poland, detailing the plight of those there at the time and incidently those that wish they were somewhere else. This book gives good insight into the lives of the displaced, people that enjoy reading accounts of war and geopolitics will find this book a worth addition. The writing style really illustrates the circumstances of being wedged between two deadly borders, unable to move, trapped in a world of desolation and decay. Reading about the struggles of the people at the time and their claustrophobic situation really makes you appreciate the freedoms we take for granted, the people we love and the memories we share. Having family members that were involved in... More > different wars it is easy to relate with Uri's recount of his fathers harrowing experience in the frozen hell of occupied poland. The photos and writing style really capture the day to day events, I'd highly recommend the read to anyone.< Less

    Very eloquent piece of writing, I enjoyed the author's insight into his life and how he wove the story around such a delicate subject. The writer here approached his field with a well-written and graceful piece of work that isn't afraid to be brutal. Very Good.

    No doubt that the author trasfers in very graphic descriptions the events his father experienced during this part of his life. A very emotional story, interesting and fluently written, hard to put down once you start reading.
