This is a recent photograph of me. It was taken in Prague in the 2000s.

I'm retired, but I've still got a lot of work. I teach English, I translate... many of my activities are related to Nicholas Winton and his rescue mission. I travel around to various schools a lot with the director Matej Minac, we sit and talk to children about what we lived through.

I met Mr. Winton for the first time in 1990, when we had a school reunion in Wales. He came there. By coincidence he lives not far from Vera, in England, so always when I go there to visit her, I see him. He's an enchanting man, who will be 97 in May 2006. And he's immensely mentally spry, active... to an unbelievable degree. In May he may come to Prague again, the director Mr. Minac is preparing some sort of continuation of the film about Winton's children, more of us have cropped up.
