On this international women’s day, I’m thinking of my mother who fled with her mother and five siblings from Poland to her native Denmark to escape the second world war, as the war front was quickly approaching her town of residence. The story she told included getting tickets to one of the last trains out of Poland and an almost separation of the family during the journey. I helped her write the story down a few years ago, and it turned into a small book, a family treasure of sorts. I’m glad she doesn’t have to endure the current situation, which would no doubt have triggered her severely.
