This is my husband Maksymilian Fiszgrund's ID from the Jewish Committee. In 1945 he got a full-time position at the Jewish Committee, he was the head of the assistance department, I think [Editor's note: deputy president of the Jewish Committee].

There was a Jewish club on Slawkowska Street, and there I met my future husband, Maksymilian Fiszgrund. In 1951, in the fall, I married him. In October.

In the 1950s 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.
