20 miles north-east of Warsaw lies the small Polish town of Radzymin. Forgotten by history, this region is home to Jaktory House, a small manor house or dwór which has been at the centre of some of the most remarkable and violent history of the twentieth century. Napoleon was here, Lenin was here, and so were the Viking SS. The largest tank battles ever on Polish soil in World War Two raged in the flat fields adjacent to Jaktory House in the late summer of 1944. Yet, despite its importance, the town of Radzymin hardly features in any history book. It, like the manor house of Jaktory, holds the key to unlocking the history of World War Two in Central and Eastern Europe. Join Professor Alexandra Richie as she explores the story of Jaktory House.
