Helen Jutkevicz - November 10, 1982


Are there times now when something will remind you of something perhaps that happened during the war--bring back a memory of something?

What remind you, it remind you all over. Sometime in the night you can not it wake you up and you have the whole picture for your eyes. This will never go, this will never go out, it will never to forget. When we met, what you talking, what you talking came out of this ??? to talk from that experience what you have.

Now that you're talking about your experiences, how do you feel about it--I mean how do you feel about talking to people today?

I talk, I talk.

You have children?

I have three children.

And did you talk about your experiences to them?

This, this is a problem for me.

Is there anything else you would like to say before we end? Something perhaps that you've never said before or would like to say?

What I can say, what I can say? This I been born not enough with the time. What I can say? This--I don't know, I don't know, maybe I not can so good speak English. I not can so, how is--express my--this, this I not can say nothing. This is just the born not in a good era, not in a good--this I can't say what, this I can't say and let me hope this would be not war and no more this would be something like this happen.

Thank you.
