War is something that is a reality for many people all over the world. World War II was particularly brutal and affected millions of people around the world, all with their own horrifying stories. But instead of dwelling on the atrocities of this war, this story of two Polish brothers who found themselves in a most unexpected manner is one of hope and joy.
World War II saw many families separated and displaced. For one family, it meant that there was the kind of separation which can affect one on a profound level. The brothers at the heart of this story had a tragic beginning but as luck would have it, fate was smiling on them and they were able to reconnect decades later. When they both entered the world, they could not have known the journey they would go on before finding each other again. A separation like this is hard but with the help of the Red Cross, the story behind how these two long lost brothers came into the world allowed them to find each other once more, even if it meant crossing an ocean to do so.
This story begins with Polish brothers Lucien and George. As you look at them side by side it would appear that they are quite similar and that they even have the same posture and body language which would make you think that they grew up together.
Sadly, this was not the case and both brothers were estranged for many years before they managed to reconnect in the most surprising of ways. It would seem that nature was at play here not nurture.
