This is me and my husband, Maksymilian Fiszgrund in Cracow. I remember it was on the wedding of Aron Geller's stepson; Geller was my husband's cousin. It was in the late 1960s, but I don't recall the exact year.
There was a Jewish club on Slawkowska Street, and there I met Fiszgrund. In 1951, in the fall, I married him. In October. We lived on Lea Street. I lived there for 40 years and today my daughter lives there. I got a job at an institution called Zjednoczenie Kotlarskie, later renamed Centralne Biuro Urzadzen. I worked there for 22 years. First I worked as the director's secretary, then in the planning department, and after that in one of the technological departments. In the end I worked in the experimental laboratory, and that's the period I have the fondest memories of. Later I fell ill and was granted a disability pension until retirement.
Then I started working for the TSKZ. Fiszgrund held a full-time position at the Jewish Committee, he was the head of the assistance department, I think. He also held a position at the TSKZ, the deputy head of some department. After the Jewish Committee was dissolved in 1953 or 1954, he was granted first a disability and then a retirement pension. He started doing translations. From German into Yiddish. He was also a correspondent for the Folksztyme, writing about the activity of Jewish organizations in Cracow. Later I also did it for some time.
My husband was a very decent man. Calm, quiet. Very calm. He was unable to get mad, and that's a precious thing. I can't do that, I'm very emotional, I'm different. We never quarreled, even though there was a substantial age difference between us, thirty years. My husband died in 1978. He is buried in the Jewish cemetery at Miodowa.
