A delicious, super-quick and easy fruit cake, recipe from a Viennese pastry chef.  Plus in light of controversial Polish legislation on the Holocaust, we return to the story of Ruth Scheuer and Celina Widawski, Jewish women who survived WW2 in Poland by passing as Christians, living on fake ID papers.

chrusty

Chrusty. Light as air pastry bow ties, which can be either savoury or sweet. (The secret – a splash of vodka!) It’s the fail-safe recipe of Lena Goldstein, the oldest grandmother in this project, who’s still baking aged 98… Lena’s also haring something she’s written -- her memories of a friend who didn’t survive the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, 74 years ago this month. “There is nobody alive who remembers his full name. Even I only know him by his first name: Heniek.”
