Hello Bolek
While staying at my cousins, I received your greetings for which I am very thankful. I am still living in Bad Wörishofen. I am no longer in a sanatorium or in a kibbutz. I currently live in a “lager” (a camp) – it is a small camp, which is actually a house with 50 persons living in it. Just imagine – I am now totally self-reliant. I am not sure if I can manage but I have tried. As you know, things are now getting worse. I would like to be on some road, as now I am neither on a land nor on water. Life is very tough – an ongoing battle. It is really bad when you have no strengths to fight this battle. Therefore, I live in hope and believe that tomorrow will be better.
