BookNight with George Szlachetko: Wira of Warsaw

Members Tuesday 12th July 2016, 7:00PM

The Frontline Club is delighted to welcome George Szlachetko to present Wira of Warsaw.

This is the true story of Danuta: her formative years in German-occupied Warsaw, her decision to become a freedom fighter at the age of 14, her life on the front line. Wira’s journey does not end with Germany’s surrender but continues with the long–term consequences of that wartime decision, as her life unfolds in exile as a political refugee. George Szlachetko manages to delve deep into Wira’s story as only a son can, revealing buried emotions and intimate details of his mother’s extraordinary life that have lain dormant for over 70 years.

The evening will start with drinks at 7:00 PM, followed by a sit-down dinner at 7:30 PM.

Three course menu costs £25 per person – drinks not included.

The event will be hosted by Frontline Club director, Pranvera Smith, and founding member and senior correspondent at the Guardian and the Observer, Ed Vulliamy.
