Synopsis

Set around the time of the 1863 Uprising and World War II, In Search of Staszewski is a powerful and moving real life account of a Polish family's six-year ordeal and fight for survival under Soviet Oppression. Focusing on a family that were victims of Tsarist Russia's oppression, the book also investigates Stalin's brutal regime and the dreaded Gulag system where, in addition to millions of Russian citizens, hundreds of thousands of innocent Poles died as a result. Some survived and escaped the Soviet `paradise', going on to fight courageously alongside allied forces during World War II. Investigated and told by the son of a survivor, who only learned the truth after the sudden death of his father, two strands of detailed investigation are woven into an emotional journey of discovery, uncovering the shocking details his father was so reluctant to speak about. In Search of Staszewski is not only the story of a fight for survival by four generations of one family, but also of a people's struggle to preserve their cultural and national identity in the face of powerful neighbours. Inspired by authors such as Norman Davies, Orlando Figes, and Pulitzer Prize winner Anne Applebaum, In Search of Staszewski uncovers the truth surrounding a little known and largely untold episode of World War II history that will surprise and shock fans of historical and biographical non-fiction works.
