Summary

1940, London.

A man learns a shocking truth about his past.

Warsaw.

A mother writes a diary as the ghetto walls go up.

From the bombed streets of London, to occupied Warsaw, to the Polish forests bristling with partisans, will their paths cross? Will their pasts be reconciled? And will they survive the deadly assaults on their freedom and their lives?

The Seamstress of Warsaw is a tale of endurance and loss, family and blood, stories and histories that questions the nature of who we are and where we are going when the road ahead is burning.

Excellent

Exceptionally performed by both narrators! not crazy about the ending (or rather, lack thereof) but otherwise highly enjoyable!
