When Harry and Jan arrive in England, Harry's mother Robina has some questions.

- Were you all given a child to take

home as a leaving present?

Is that the traditional way in Poland?

- Jan won't be the only refugee.

Not while Britain stands by

and let the Nazis rampage over Europe.

- Is he Jewish?

- [Harry] Catholic.

- I thought it was the Jews who were in trouble.

Why isn't he Jewish?

- Would you like me to go back and exchange him?

Warsaw is rubble.

All of the children are in danger.

That's why I had to do something.

Even if I just help one.

- You're assuming he's going to stay here, are you?

Surely, nobody is better placed than you

to recognize that I have no maternal instincts whatsoever.

- They send me down to Whitehall tomorrow.

I'll get my next posting there.

I can't think much beyond that, to be honest.

- Why him?

Why this boy?

- I had no idea it would be such a problem

to house a refugee here.

- My problem, Harry, is I know you're lying.

I don't know why and I don't know what about,

but there is the unmistakable scent of a lie.
