About this book:

Biography of a registered nurse who circumvented the Nazi and communist regimes to help people in need.
This is a story about a Polish nurse, Hanna Chrzanowska (1902 -1973). Hanna was a great Polish patriot. During the Second World War, her tireless work with the homeless and refugees in Kraków significantly avoided mass hunger and outright starvation in the over-crowded city. After the war, Hanna, established and coordinated Catholic Parish Nursing in communist Poland. She worked for most of her professional life as a qualified nursing instructor in the field of community nursing, in schools of nursing in Poland. She is a model for today's generation of nurses and healthcare workers.

Reader review:
Nurse Hanna Chrzanowska may help obtain cures for ailments.

by Al Roberts
During the time I was reading this book - a biography of one of the first registered nurses in modern times - given serious consideration for canonization to sainthood in the Catholic Church - I felt touched by her life and experienced what I consider a cure with the help of healthcare personnel for two ailments - one of them in connection with hypertension. If any readers experience similar graces during reading of this book please report such occurrences to the publisher: wparkspublishing@aol.com The publisher will submit them to the priest in charge of obtaining evidence of graces obtained through the intercession of the Venerable Servant of God Nurse Hanna Chrzanowska (1902-1973).
