IamA (Polish World War 2 survivor, I went from everything to nothing and back) AMA!
My name is Sonja DeJagmin Mirska and I was born in Nowoskiulki*sic, Poland (at the time), lived in Wisniowcé, and at the onset of the War was moved around Europe between Den Hague and Dresden during the bombing.
I now live in the states, after meeting the love of my life 56 years ago who recently passed away, and am having my beautiful grandson Adam abridge and answer your questions.
You can call me Moonie. Adam will try and keep some sensitive information out of the AMA, but if you have any desire to investigate more or have any pertinent information send a PM to this account. Ask me anything.
*edit 1: Adam here: Moonie can be a great story teller but a little long winded, I'm going to try and keep her answers succinct and... she doesn't have internet at her house, so the answers may trickle in over the course of the next few days. Hopefully I'll be get answers for all of your questions. I'm also planning on uploading interviews I recorded of Moonie when I was a young man to soundcloud. Hopefully those will be posted sooner rather than later.
**edit 2: We're going to call a break, it's now 5:00pm. Keep asking questions and I'll ask moonie as many as possible and try and answer them over the next few days.

EDIT 3: Adam here: Hey guys, I had a feeling that this thread would blow up. I really appreciate all the love you have shown my grandma, she's really an amazing person. I've been working the past few days (black friday retail 2nd shift :/) So I'll try and get to Moonies house by Monday and get answers to some more questions. Thank you all for being patient.
If anybody is questioning the validity of Moonie's AMA I can send the mods Moonie and her mothers immigration forms.
In the mean time I've created a mediafire folder of the interviews I recorded with Moonie over the past several years, It's quite sizable but if you have a few hours to kill it's a good listen. Quality is pretty bad as it was tape recorded.
