During this program, we take you back to September 1, 1939, the beginning of World War II, when the Germans and Soviets invaded Poland. Many people lost their lives during the war-time effort. However, we would like to focus on a special Polish heroine. Her name was Danuta Siedzikówna, her underground name: Inka, a Polish national heroine. Born 3 September 1928, Guszczewina – died 28 August 1946, Gdańsk) was a medical orderly in the 4th Squadron (created in theBiałystok area) of the 5th Wilno Brigade of the Polish Home Army. In 1946 she served with the Brigade's 1st Squadron in Poland's Pomorze (Pomerania) region.

 We begin our program with a special song dedicated to Inka - Hymn Inki- sung by Alicja Wegorzewska- mezzo soprano. Music- Bogdan Kierejsza
