Brave Bunch in India

Poland2021documentary80'Kids&Youth

An exceptional story of a 10-year-old Wiesio, one of thousands of Polish children who were saved from the hell of World War II by an Indian Maharajah. In the Easter of 1940 the boy, together with his mother and brother, was arrested by NKVD and deported to Siberia. He shared the dramatic fate of thousands of Polish deportees. His rescue arrived from the least expected direction. This multimedia webdoc tells an authentic story of Wiesław Stypuła using comic strips, animation and archival materials.
