About Mrs Martyna Parsons

Born Martyna Kozubska in 1931 Poland, this author lived through the worst that World War II had to offer. At the tender age of 18 months, she was separated from her parents, following a divorce, and placed with an aunt to oversee her welfare. That devastating dissolution of her family resulted in Martyna never seeing her biological mother again. Her aunt, whom she warmly remembers as a Godmother, did her best to care for the growing child, but with the advent of WWII, life in Poland became almost unbearable. Her experiences are now chronicled in the pages of Through the Eyes of a Child. Martyna has travelled to the depths of despair, where she found hope and the will to live. Surviving the war, she escaped Poland in 1946 to be united with her father in Italy. Together, they managed to find their way to Britain, forging a life from the ashes of terrible hardships. In 1952, Ms. Kozubska married an Englishman and took the surname Parsons. They called the U.K. home for 25 years and were blessed with four wonderful children before moving to Australia. Today her memories shout to the world a story of inspiration and healing - life goes on, as she truly can attest.
