A Polish resistance group is trapped in a sewer. Exactly the experience of my father in law. He was 19 when he took part in the Warsaw Uprising as part of the Polish Resistance. After several close encounters with certain death he and others tried to make their escape along a sewer until the Germans began dropping in hand-grenades. Obliged to leave the sewer some were met by the SS, lined up and shot. He was lucky. His Aryan looks may have helped (tall, blonde and blue-eyed). He was taken prisoner. A year later the Americans arrived. He had no intention of staying in Poland. He chose between England and the US. He chose England and ended up living in Gateshead where he learnt English. He then applied to Aberdeen University where he secured a place to read Philosophy. This was followed by an M.A. taken at my old college, Balliol, Oxford. He stayed on to lecture, took a DPhil and became a fellow of Pembroke College. etc: etc:

Had us all in tears at the time. We also swaw we’d never divorce when we ‘grew up.’ Niavelly I took the view that I had to be monogamous in my teens and early twenties. Testing myself. Was it possible. Yes. But only with the right person.
