A part of the Polish Film Festival. During World War II, about 1000 Polish children from occupied Poland and Soviet prison camps in Stalin’s Siberia, travelled to Gujarat in India, where Jam Saheb (Ruler) Digvijaysinhji Ranjitsinhji Jadeja of Nawanagar took personal risks to build a camp for them in Balachadi, 25 km from his capital city Jamnagar. Five of the survivors, settled now in Warsaw (Poland), relate unique heart- warming stories of their “home” in Jamnagar and Balachadi where they spent four years of their childhoods.
