What are your plans for your children's future?

I cannot make their future.

Well, you've got one coming up. Want to tell us about it?

Well, that again his future, his dreams. You know, for the longest time when I see a baby, a grandchild, I, I cannot get close to it, real close from the feeling that I see the babies that were taken to the, to the crematorium. It took me a long time to admit it, why I couldn't get close to the babies. Until I realized that I connected these babies with the past until they grow on me. Once they grow on me I accept them as babies.

What are they?

Two girls and a boy.

How old are they?

The little boy is five, the little girl is three and the other one is one.

I think this would be a good place to end it. I just wanted to say what I was supposed to say in the beginning. You understand that this interview will be used for educational purposes and that um, it is being recorded. I was supposed to do this in the beginning. Do you understand that?

Yes, yes I do.

Thank you.
