CATONSVILLE, Md. – It may have all happened a long time ago, but the wounds of the past are slow to heal. Just recently, a former prison guard at the Nazi death camp in Auschwitz is being tried in Germany for having allegedly volunteered for the job. In light of this, author Anthony P. Kowalski takes readers back in time with “The Crowned White Eagle” (published by Xlibris), which traces the history of the Polish people, their trials and tribulations.
This book features the tribulations experienced by Poland during World War II. Capturing the essence of a crucial time in Polish history, it is written to stand as a symbolic reminder of the country’s tenacity, endurance and unwavering spirit that surpass all forms of atrocity. In looking into the country’s tumultuous past, Kowalski shows that even though two centuries of violence, misery and crimes to humanity may have torn down families and taken the lives of many citizens, it never took away the people’s hope, for the aspiration for freedom and democracy prevailed continuously within the hearts of the valiant Polish people.
“This is a unique testimony to a forgotten people,” says Kowalski. In expressing the Polish people’s plight, “The Crowned White Eagle” echoes the struggles of many ethnic and religious minorities around the world. It is his intent that this book would give readers the courage to stand up for their ideals and inspire them to work against oppression of every stripe.
