This is my husband, Maksymilian Fiszgrund, on his vacation in the well-known Polish health resort Duszniki Zdroj. The photo was taken in 1947, before we met. My husband stayed in Lednica until the end of the war. In 1945 he got a full-time position at the Jewish Committee, he was the deputy president of the Jewish Committee. This may have been 1950, when I met Maksymilian Fiszgrund. He had just lost his wife, and was alone, I guess, when I met him. It was his second wife, nee Keller, I think, and her first married name was Fedbelt. She had this strange first name? Hermina! It was a very short-lived marriage. In 1950 she developed a suppurative inflammation of the gall bladder, inflection set in following surgery, and she died. There was a Jewish club on Slawkowska Street, and there I met Fiszgrund. In 1951, in the fall, I married him. In October.
