This picture was taken in the 1950s. It shows, from the left, my wife, Nina Pikielna-Barylko, my mother's second husband, Tikitin, my wife's mother, and my mother, Czeslawa Tikitin (nee Drutowska). I began my studies at Gdansk Technical University in 1947. That's where I met my wife, Nina. Nina was born in 1930 in Warsaw, where she lived until the war. She did an engineering course, then a master's degree, then a PhD and a postdoctoral degree. The University of Helsinki awarded her a honorary doctorate. After graduation I lectured at Gdansk Technical University. I started a PhD at Warsaw Technical University. I never finished it. From 1956 until my retirement I worked in the Industrial Telecommunications Institute. Our son, Piotr, was born in 1953. He graduated from the Popular Music Department in Katowice. He has a son, Jakub. After II World War, my mother started to work as a secretary in the Health Protection Society, TOZ. Later she got a job at a textile industry export center, because she knew three languages - English, German, and French. She got married for the second time. She took her second husband's last name - Tikitin. My step-father was a doctor, Mom met him at the TOZ. She died in 1972.
