He was, the dream was to go out from Poland, any place, but it was not possible because we didn't have any money. So it came, my sister had a friend, girlfriend, for years she did go out with this girlfriend, which my brother was thinking, he didn't take a special attention on her. But, then one time this girlfriend went to Paris, France. She did write her parents, "I would, I like very much, you know, Yaacov, Jacob. Could you talk with, with him and with his parents? I have money and have a good job. I would send him money to be ready to smuggle him to, to come to Paris, to join me, and have, uh, to be, to get married."
