The Compass Points to Monte Cassino
When my father was a prisoner during World War II in Romania, he convinced a guard to give him this compass, which ultimately aided his escape on a quest to join the Anders Army. Next Saturday, on the eve of a celebration recognizing General Wladyslaw Anders in Warsaw, my father will present this compass as a gift to Anna Maria Anders, the daughter of General Anders. I expect that to be just one of many highlights on a trip that will take us to Warsaw, Rome, Monte Cassino, Ancona, Bologna, Krakow, and Bochnia. This trip came about at the invitation of the Polish Government, and will include visits with friends and family who have impacted my family story, Captured in Liberation. Throughout that trip, I'll be updating this travel blog, so invite you to join us in what should be an exciting and emotional journey.
