I hope that you are all enjoying the summer. This months newsletter is really to say a big thank you to all who have supported our events this month of June 2012.
20th June 2012 marked the 70th anniversary of Kazik Piechowski’s escape from Auschwitz. Imprisoned for being a Polish boy scout we thought it quite fitting to share his story with as many scout groups as possible across the globe. In fact the total number of scouts who viewed our film reached approx 60000. This was made possible due to the close cooperation of the Scout Association in the UK and the Museum of Scouting in Warsaw, Poland.
Kazik’s story has been a major force of inspiration for my music over the past few years. Since I met Kazik in 2009 and presented him with my song, ‘Kommander’s Car,’ [watch music video here], I have been injected with an overwhelming desire to find out more about my own Polish roots and heritage. So please watch this space as my 4th album inspired by further stories kazik shared with me is released this autumn 2012.
