2 Days After This WWII Hero Gave His Granddaughter Away, The Family Were Dealt A Devastating Blow

With a military honor adorning his chest and likely a feeling of pride in his heart, Bronisław Karwowski leads his granddaughter Joanna down the aisle on her wedding day. Now aged 94, the World War II veteran has played witness to some of the most harrowing chapters in human history – but this fall day is one of joy. And there may be barely a dry eye in the house as the bride and her grandpa walk arm in arm through the church. Just a few hours later, though, Karwowski’s family’s happiness will be overwhelmed by tragedy.

Yet on such a beautiful day, it may have seemed impossible to imagine that heartbreak would follow so soon after. And Karwowski himself had seen terrible trials and hardships over the course of his life after taking up arms against both the Nazis and the communists.
