He lives with his wife, Marysia, in Washington, DC.

About the book

My story jumps across initial parts of going nowhere. The decision to cross the Atlantic was prompted by political developments totally outside of our control. We moved blindly, unprepared and oblivious of what to expect. A series of jobs, some typical for immigrants, some acquired by pure luck, followed.

The message: have courage to open closed doors, be bold forgetting your ignorance, there will always be time to learn and to get educated. Above all, never allow yourself the luxury of not trying. The book that you are about to read does not convey heroism, it does not depict battles of major proportions. It is an attempt to project a journey that was neither planned nor anticipated, a journey of one family’s adventure that started as a tragedy yet is about to end as fulfillment. The German invasion of Poland was the tragedy, living the final days in America the fulfillment. The title tells you what to look for. We started in Warsaw. We ended up in Washington. The ‘wherever’ was in between.
