    One thought on “Victims of Stalin and Hitler: The Exodus of Poles and Balts to Britain”

    1. This is a very harrowing account of the conditions Poles and Balts faced during World War II and following it because of the USSR and Communism. It focuses on those who migrated to Britain, many of whom enjoyed considerable success. The story of those who escaped Communism and totalitarianism is vastly important.
