My grandfather and mother are from Zoliborz in Warsaw. They lived in Poland until the capitulation of the underground army in the Warsaw Uprising. My grandfather was taken to a POW camp in Germany, and my mom was taken to the western side of Poland. Eventually my mother escaped to Sweden and met my dad. They married in Sweden and came to Canada in 1949. Afterwards my mother found her dad and sponsored him to come to Canada in 1950.
