This is how I look these days. The picture was taken in my apartment in Cracow in December 2004.

And now me and my wife Julia, we just live our lives quietly. I joined the Jewish Social and Cultural Society at the beginning of the 1990s. I just started going to their meetings and I liked it. At first I went alone, and then with my wife. Not too often, because we don't really feel like going into town at night much. We're at the age where really we sit at home and in front of the television.

Now the family is a little bigger, because my daughter's family came back from Israel where they spent eight years, so we visit each other a lot. My son Mariusz and his family live close by too, in Nowa Huta. We have a little plot of land for leisure near Myslenice. And that's how we're set up.
