This is a picture of the three of us, me and my sisters. From left: Irena Beczkowska (nee Horowitz), Olga Pamm (nee Horowitz) and me. This picture was taken in Wieliczka when I was about six, so it could have been 1915. I had two sisters: Olga was the elder one, and Irena the younger one. Irena was two years my junior, and Olga was four years my senior. Olga was born on 29th September 1905 and Irena on 25th March 1911. We were all born in Wieliczka. We had housemaids, usually two of them. One of them was Kasia, a maid from my childhood who at some point got married, but still took care of the children. Then her sister started working for us, Anielcia Puterowna. Both were treated well, like family members rather than on a master-servant basis.
