Written by John Roy-Wojciechowski and Allan Parker.

'The remarkable survival story of a Polish Child'.

This book is in ENGLISH.

It is also available in Polish language. Please check our other listing 'Polski Nowozelandczyk'.

On a bitterly cold winter's morning in 1940, little Jan Wojciechowski and his family were rounded up by the conquering Russians to begin the arduous journey to a labour camp in the Arctic. Along with the millions of other Polish citizens, they endured years of cruel hardship and deprivation. Millions perished but the Wojciechowski children miraculously survived.

This is the story of a barely known holocaust that brought young Jan to New Zealand in 1944; at its heart is a family who refused to be crushed by the terrifying force of Stalinism. 'A Strange Outcome' also gives a fascinating glimpse into the fledgling beginnings of big business in New Zealand and the influences that put Jan, now known as John Roy, on the pathway to a happy and enormously successful life.

John Roy-Wojciechowski is available for book signing if requested at the Polish Heritage Museum, Howick, Auckland.
