On October 10 2023 we had the opportunity to host Ms Edina Alavi, who, together with her husband and brother, came to our school to tell us the story of her father and grandfather, who are distinguished residents of our city. The participating classes (2d and 3d) were presented with the book , „Five Prisons To Arnhem” by Bartek Mazur, which tells the story of Ms. Alavi’s father. We learned about the moving story of Ms Edina’s father, who told us what his journey from Third Reich-occupied Poland to the UK was like, where he was able to join the Army to fight for free Poland. Thanks to the casual formula of the meeting, she managed to get the students interested; they could not hide their emotions. After the presentation, Ms. Alavi donated one copy of the book to our school, which is already available to our students. We strongly encourage you to read it!
