Ukradzione dzieciństwo / Stolen Childhood

Tomasz Łabuszewski, Ukradzione dzieciństwo / Stolen Childhood, cooperation Anna Maria Adamus, Ewa Dyngosz, Edyta Gula, Warszawa 2022, 224 p., ISBN 978-83-8229-535-1 

The album is dedicated to the most vulnerable Polish victims of World War II. Children accounted for as much as 1/3 of all victims of the approximately 6 million Poles who perished between 1939 and 1945. They were as much targets of the repressive actions of the totalitarian regimes as their parents. They perished during deportations, pacifications, and concentration and extermination camps. They worked in inhumane conditions in the USSR and the Third Reich. After the end of the war they often shared the fate of the drifters.
