"At the age of 14-15 in the Janowski camp, I met people much smarter and more experienced than me, waiting for the mercy of the Nazis, I understood then the most important thing.

"Probably, Jacob is still alive.
At least until the the coronavirus period, one afternoon I went to his room to talk and ask how he was doing.

I decided not to wake him up.
Let him sleep".
