A Long Walk to Freedom Jannina Derrick 24th June 2013

At the age of 6 in 1945, Jannina and her mother set off from Poznan in Poland to escape the oppression of the Soviets who through the turmoil of the war had now occupied her country.

Her father had already left and walked to Greece and then got to England to join the RAF. The story of her journey with her mother through to Berlin with little money and food was truly a wonder and a real tribute to the character of her mother’s generation.
