I was devastated to hear of the passing of Danuta Gradosielska (née Mączka) a wonderful person, Polish patriot and war veteran. Sending love and strength to her family at this very sad time. Daunta was stolen as a slave in 1940 transported to Stalin’s slave labour camps – the Gulags in Siberia when she was 14 years of age.

She had been living a happy, carefree life on Osada Krechowiecka (an army settlement) with her parents, two brothers and a sister. She became a brave female soldier in General Anders Army and served at the Battle of Monte Cassino 1944. We commemorate the 80th Anniversary of the Battle of Monte Cassino years this year 2024.

✨✨✨ Pani Danuta you were a true inspiration for my music and songwriting. Thank you for your creativity and bravery RIP ✨✨✨
