This site is dedicated to Wojtek The Soldier Bear and the men of the 22nd Transport Company, Artillery Division, Polish 2nd Corp.
And also to my father, Dymitr Szawlugo, and is the story
of his early life before he married my mother. Like so many hundreds of
thousands of Polish people, he experienced the invasion of his country by
the armies led by two very tyrannical leaders that were responsible for
the deaths of millions of innocent individuals simply to further their own
perverted aims. His story is told in my father's own words.
