1946 Warsaw 5-Part series by Michael Frome

Headlines. Washington Post Editor’s notes.
By-lines: Michael Frome

Navigates DC-4 to Warsaw for Veterans Air in June 1946.
Unveils “the ruins” of Warsaw in five articles for The Washington Post readers.







This series is a monumental credit to Michael Frome’s investigative ability and writing skills. It also demonstrates a tremendous confidence in Michael by The Washington Post given the sensitivity and timing of the subject matter. Michael personally gave me approval to share The Post articles6, videos he created, and other messages that appear in stories about him on this website. I am sharing headlines here so you can get a glimpse into this part of his character and career.
