A description of the experience

 Mary Rose Barrington, Ian Stevenson and Zofia Weaver, A World in a Grain of Sand: The Clairvoyance of Stefan Ossowiecki,  2005

Just imagine, we even went to see him with Maga [the correspondent's sister]. It must have been 1940. We were both in love, and our boyfriends had been transported by the Germans. It so happens that a friend of my Dad knew Ossowiecki well. We begged Dad to ask Ossowiecki through his friend to agree to see us, to find out if our boyfriends were alive. Ossowiecki agreed. It was somewhere in the center [of Warsaw], but I cannot remember exactly where: an elegant apartment, an elderly butler opened the door. Ossowiecki - an elderly gentleman-received us with a smile. He took the - I don't remember photographs or letters - I think photographs, and said with the same smile "don't worry, they are both alive."

That was the end of our visit. After two or three years, when it was well established that Maga's love (who was our cousin) was in the camp in Mathausen-Gossen, and Maga even managed to establish contact with him, she received a telegram notifying her of his death. She was shattered by this news, and some people tried to comfort her by saying that it may be a mistake, as such errors did happen from time to time. Maga asked through Dad again and Ossowiecki agreed [to see her]. When she came to Ossowiecki she gave him the photograph and asked if the subject was alive. Ossowiecki said to her: "but you have a telegram in your handbag, notifying you of his death"[which was true]. She then explained that she had hoped the news was a mistake, but Ossowiecki told her it was the truth.
