Displaced by war

  • Featuring: Frank Latawiec & Mary Mitchell
  • Date Submitted: Jan 27, 2020
  • Location: Providence Mount St. Vincent.

Frank Latawiec recounts his boyhood days in Poland when Russia, and then Germany invaded during WWII. The Germans rounded up all able-body men and sent them into horrendous labor camps, including Frank, who was only 10 at the time. Frank survived the labor camp. After the war, he and his family moved into a displacement camp until they were allowed to immigrate to the United States to live with his great aunt in Seattle. Edit credit: Sean Collins
