Tailor. Soldier. Fugitive. Man. Born in Gnilowoda, Poland 1919. Died in Inverness 1992. "I come from the Soviets and the Nazis. I come from a farm, from the forests and fields of green Ukraine, from the ruins of Germany, from the beaches of the Adriatic, from the grimy streets of Glasgow and the cool air of Inverness." Words, music, dance and video combine to tell the moving story of this ordinary man caught by the murderous tides of the Second World War.
