NEW DELHI: A Little Poland in India a poignant story of around one thousand orphaned children from Poland, who found a sanctuary in India at the height of Nazi German Dictator Hitler?s atrocities in Poland, will be telecast by Doordarshan tomorrow.

A Little Poland in India will be officially telecast 10 November at 3:00 pm and on11 November at 7:30 am on DD National and will there after open the inaugural ?Kinoteka Polish Film Festval? on18 November at India Habitat Centre.

The hour-long documentary is the true and captivating story of the then Jam Saheb (Ruler) Digvijaysinhji Ranjitsinhji Jadeja of Nawanagar,nephew of famous Indian cricketer Ranjitsinhji Vibhaji of the Jadeja clan,a princely state in the Kathiawar Peninsula, off the land of Gujarat. It is the heart-warming story of an enriched historical bond between India and Poland. It is a story that represents people-to people contact in its most humane form, beyond borders and across continents.

During World War II, about 1000 Polish children from war-torn, occupied Poland and Soviet prison camps in Stalin?s Siberia travelled all the way to India, where Jam Saheb took personal risks to make arrangements at a time when the world was at war and India was struggling for its Independence. He built a camp for them in a place called Balachadi beside his summer palace, 25 km from his capitalcity Jamnagar, and made them feel at home.

 

This is the first film that has been co-produced between the governments of India and Poland under the Audio-Visual agreement between both countries. The co-producers are Doordarshan and the Gujarat Government in India, and the InA (National Audiovisual Institute) and TVP (Telewizja Polska) in Poland.

Directed by Anuradha and Sumit Osmand Shaw with research by Anuradha herself, the film took the help of historian Dr. Andrzej Krzysztof KunertSecretary General of the Council for the Protection of Struggle and Martyrdom Sites. The Research Coordinators were Kresy-Siberia Foundation and a Balachadi survivor Wieslaw Stypula.  

The film contains interviews with several survivors, including two children who met in Balachadi but married 78 years later in Poland.
