The Cross Border House came together to meet the needs of Ukrainians seeking shelter from war.

The holistic philosophy of care and service supports a sanctuary for our residents to reclaim their sense of human dignity, hope and optimism. When all has been taken away, The Cross Border House is here to offer the space and the time so that each individual may have the opportunity to restore meaning and purpose to their lives.

My mother-in-law, Rose Popiel Kieniewicz, sheltered forty-plus refugees during World War II in her manor home at Ruszcza (Poland). The family always regretted not having an account of those six years.

As I had found myself under similar circumstances, I recognized the importance of such a journal and in early March started keeping a diary. I knew I was next to something big—something that needed to be documented. The result is The War Diaries.

A donation to The Cross Border House will grant you full access to The War Diaries archive as well as to all future entries.

Thank You.
