Many thanks for this, DD. It does indeed put things into perspective. Despite every petty little irritation, we have it easy, don't we?

You'll think me terribly cynical, but is there independent evidence for this tale?

DM, were it a boastful story of wartime daring-do I suspect Max would have put it about long before he died but apparently it only came out after his death. A worse thought to contemplate is that it is probably far from being the hardest tale of suffering during the Holocaust.

Entirely right, 'W', it resets the perspective of our lives.

I guess the farmer deserves a mention. I wonder if he would have done it if no money had changed hands and whether he was tempted to hand Max over.

Poland being Poland I suspect that the answers to your double question are 'no' and 'yes' respectively, 'H'. Still, give him his due, he took a risk.
