BeschreibungThe Polish national treasures, evacuated in 1939 and eventually sent to Canada for safekeeping during the war, didnt return to their native land until 22 years later. Their journey was indeed a strange odyssey.
PortraitGordon Swoger was born in the Eastern Townships of Quebec and was educated at McGill and McMaster Universities. He spent his working years as a teacher of high school military history. In the 1990's Gord and his wife went to Poland three times to teach English and History in Warsaw. The Strange Odyssey of Poland's National Treasures, 1939-1961 is his first book.
Pressestimmen(Gordon Swoger) retains the suspence, explains the riddles of Polish history, describes the valuable objects and the people who participated in this unusual enterprise. Swoger's Strange Odyssey belongs to a growing series of books published by non-Polish scholars and wrtiers who find and present a history of Poland as a fascinating topic, worth international attention and further studies." -- University of Toronto Quarterly, Vol. 75, Number 1, Winter, 20060101
