This is a picture of me and my family. From left: Ania (my sister's daughter), then Mateusz (my grandson), Jan (my second grandson), Irena (my sister's daughter), my wife Janina, my son Piotr, me and Halina Borowicz, my son's wife. This picture was taken in our house, in Warsaw, about twelve years ago. My son, Piotr, obtained a PhD in chemistry and went to work in Tarchomin. He runs the Biotechnology and Antibiotics Institute. His wife, Halina, is a psychoanalyst. They have two sons, one has already obtained a degree, the other passed the high school finals this year. Since they were born they have spent all the weekends with us. Ania, who had a great talent for languages, went in 1964 to Geneva to stay with my sister Olga and study. She completed the UN's excellent school for conference translators there. After 1968 she didn't want to return to Poland and started a career there. Today she runs a large faculty at Geneva University. This way my wife and I were left alone. After our return from Berlin, my wife worked for many years at the Czytelnik publishing house. Now she's retired but she's still a very busy woman. We lead a busy social life, meet with family members, go to the cinema and theater.
