    In December of 1940, 7 members of the Poljokan family arrived from Yugoslavia and your town helped in hiding them from the Nazi’s until the end of the war. Marcos,age2 at the time, as safe an was able to enter school when he was of age, sand in the church choir and enjoyed a childhood under a very dark history in Europe. He spent six years in your town and several more in Italy until Marcos and his mother could get visa’s to enter the United States. The other members of his family went from your town to Brazil.

    Marcos is finally coming back to Italy, arriving in Lake Como on September 5th and have plans to drive to your lovely town around September 13th for a few days. I am hoping that somewhere in the archives of the town there is some information about the family “Poljokan”. School records? children that attended school around that time?

    Thank you for reading this email and any help would be wonderful. Where we have the information or not, Marcos is looking forward to coming and exploring a very important part of his past. Your town helped him survive so that he was able to go forward and make a goof life for himself and take care of his mother. Sincerely, Barbara Silverman x
