“Isaiah Haastrup after six hours of combat was born to eternal life. The City of Heaven has a new citizen, we a new intercessor at the Blessed Trinity. To God the revenge of his innocent blood.
‘… child without malice, you began to be among innocent souls. Oh how safe for you this life, as joyfully welcomed you Mother Church upon return from this world! The moan of the heart, dry the tears of the eyes’ “.
(Inscriptiones christianae urbis Romae, I, 1698)
After being betrayed by the British to be butchered by invading Nazi barbarians in 1939.
And after being betrayed by the British again at the Yalta Conference in 1945 and left at the mercy of Soviet Communist barbarity.
All the while imprisoned and suffering in Nazi concentration camps and Soviet gulags because of British perfidy, whilst Polish airmen valiantly and decisively gave their lives successfully defending Britain’s shores in the Battle of Britain, it seems almost impossible to imagine that the British political class could yet again betray the memory of the brave Poles who fought against Nazi and Communism barbarity.
But that is exactly what has happened with a small Polish commemoration that has taken place over the past few years in Rusilip, West London, where the Polish War Memorial is located.
