The Stolen Child
During the Second World War 200,000 Polish children were captured by the Nazis and taken to Germany to replenish the "master race". This is the story of two cousins, stolen on the same day, Alojzy and Leon Twardecki (Alojzy was 4, Leon was 10). Alojzy was adopted by a good Nazi family. He knew nothing of his Polish past until, one day when he was 12, a letter arrived from Poland. Producer Catrine Clay

Those early misgivings gave way to a tide of rail-building.
Danger lurked, however. "The railways in the 1890s were little less than a slaughterhouse," says railway flreman-turned-historian David McKenna.
