Anna Karczewska Slowikowska is a retired Chartered Psychologist. For over 30 years, she worked in the voluntary, statutory and private sectors, during which time she had a number of articles published. Her interest in her mother’s wartime experiences developed from a curiosity to learn more about her and to research her familial past. The tranquillity of her home in the beautiful Scottish Borders town of Melrose helped her write of her mother’s disturbing background.
Anna has two children, Beatrix and Alexander, and three granddaughters, and each year commutes between Australia and Scotland.
Time is also spent in her architectural award-winning home, playing tennis and badminton. Anna has recently become a member of Probus and volunteers with Talking Newspapers for the blind.
