By a Twist of History book. Life there was tough and harsh, but he escaped the Holocaust and after the war joined the Polish foreign service. He was posted in Moscow, London, Korea, Cambodia and Canada, in the latter two as head of mission. By a Twist of History describes Sieradzki's experiences at the time, and refutes the myth, wide-spread in Poland, that large numbers of Jews had worked in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and reflects on Polish anti-Semitism. Sieradzki and his family eventually settled in Britain to build a new life.

Mietek Sieradzki left his family and fled Nazi-occupied .
Mietek Sieradzki left his family and fled Nazi-occupied Poland to the Soviet Union, where he was deported to Siberia. Tough and harsh though life there was, he escaped the Holocaust in which his father and more than 90 percent of his extended family perished. This part of By a Twist of History includes the dramatic history of the Polish art treasures spirited out of Nazi-occupied Poland, and kept for many years in Canada. Their return to Poland during his term of office was the highlight of his career. The book then describes his work at a fairly senior level in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Warsaw, where he dealt with English speaking countries.
Before the Holocaust, Jews were the largest minority in Poland Jews had been living in Poland since at least the Middle Ages
Before the Holocaust, Jews were the largest minority in Poland. That did not mean that antisemitism did not impact the lives of Polish Jews, but Jews were part of Poland, and Polish culture was, in part, Jewish. When the Nazis set their sights on Poland, they sought to destroy all that was there and build it up again as a colonial homeland for Germans. Jews had been living in Poland since at least the Middle Ages. When Crusaders moved through Europe in the thirteenth century, Jewish refugees sought safety in Poland.
