This photo was taken at the birthday party of my sister's son, Marek Kirszenbaum. It is in their home. On this photo we can see Marek Kirszenbaum, he is fourth from left, and my son Krzysztof, third from left. Those who were leaving for Israel were doing so with highly bitter feelings. Some, those who experienced the pogroms, I understand. My brother-in-law, who did a lot for Poland, also met with injustice, was sacked from his job, virtually thrown on the street. And, following Gomulka's speech, he and his wife, my sister, left. Many like them left then, people that had devoted their lives to Poland. Their elder son, Marek, was born in 1947, lives in France today. Marek Kirszenbaum. He has three wonderful kids, Bruno is the youngest, born in 1981. My sister and her husband emigrated with their younger son who lives in Los Angeles now. And Marek stayed because he already had a career, in physics. And today he's retired. He's very talented, he worked at the equivalent of our Nuclear Research Institute. My sister and her husband have moved to Los Angeles. Our younger son, Krzysio, was born in 1950. He had those beautiful curls, such lovely hair, and today he's bald?
