Poland. 2009

“It wasn’t a dream” reads the title of a short article in a local newspaper. Tadeusz shows it to me with pride. After the WWII he was admitted to the most prominent polish military college.

“A dream for all the boys” – he emphasised.

His life had a different destiny though. In his last years he lived in an attic creating meticulously handcrafted birdhouses. Those birdhouses could be found in many local gardens. But nobody knew the struggle Tadeusz was living through.
