In the picture you can see preparations before a trip abroad. We were going to Hungary. The photo was taken in Mukachevo probably sometime during the 1960's. In the photograph I'm the closest to the photographer.

Before 1991 I used to visit the West, I was in Austria and Hungary. I was there both during the war [World War II], and after. They respected me very much, and always, when the first party secretary - Emilio Vas - he was the first party secretary in Mukachevo and at the same time a very decent person. Always, when they sent a delegation to Presov, Kosice, Budapest and Moscow, he would put me in the delegation. I helped the town a lot.
