In 1989 Radek Sikorski returned home to Poland, having spent eight years in exile in Britain. After enduring half a century under totalitarian regimes, Poland was beginning an era of freedom. Sikorski decided to go back to his homeland to restore a manor house in the country and to pick up the threads of his life in Poland before he was exiled. Through this experience, delving into the history of the manor house and the families connected with it, which is filled with actual places and real people, some his own relatives and some people he encounters through the house and its history. During the process of restoring the house Sikorski discovered the diaries of his uncle Edek which describe his daring escape from a hospital in Germany, where he was being experimented on. He then lived as the adopted son of a German family and survived Allied bombing. Mr Rott, the local hunchback, was too lazy to escape and had his legs broken. Edek lived in a camp outside Münster where he was stabbed in the back by a jealous boyfriend who suspected him of having an affair with his Yugoslav girlfriend. Sikorski's great-uncle, a Polish priest survived Buchenwald and Dachau, and returned to Poland which was soon to become Communist. His grandmother was arrested but by sheer chance escaped being shot by Germans. Most of the pre-war inhabitants of the manor house perished in Siberia. These are the ordinary people whose lives fill this moving and evocative book, but Sikorski is also acutely aware of the grand wheels of history and politics at work not only on a house, but a village and a country. With a novelist's eye for revealing detail and a politician's instinct for the deeper currents running through society, Sikorski brings to life the dramatic history of Poland. Occupied by Warsaw Pact troops under Communism, carved up by the German and Soviet armies during World War II, Poland has constantly struggled under the burden of foreign conquerors. Sikorski offers a fascinating insider's account of the political transformation of a country struggling to rebuild its national identity. -- From dust jacket
