My name is Jean Metcalfe ( Kasperczyk) and I am a semi retired Registered Practice Nurse. My career spans 40 years, between Trenton Memorial Hospital and Belleville General Hospital.
Growing up my parents always shared their tragic stories of what happened to them during WW11. My mother was born in Russia and at the age of 15 was taken from her family by German soldiers. My father was born in Poland where during WW11 became a soldier and later was enlisted by the American army. Their strength and courage through this time and throughout their lives is admirable and I felt compelled to share their story with the world. How do you survive WW11? My parents did just that. This is their story.
