This is my picture, taken during a visit in the Wieliczka salt mine. I was born in that town, but after the war I didn't go back there apart from this one time in 1964. After returning from Berlin I went to work in Warsaw as a representative of a mining equipment plant, I helped them as best as I could, after which I transferred to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In 1962 I moved to the State Inspectorate of Fuel and Energy Management; there were five departments there, and I was in charge of one of those.
