Franciszek could not go back to Poland for fear of repercussions due to his pre-war political activity in the ranks of the National Party, which was regarded as a hostile ideology (the same as all alternative political options) by the new communist authority in Poland.

  • Transcript: Best wishes from Gdynia, Sopot, and Oliwa. We are visiting wonderful cathedral, park, and the coast. We are coming back in 2 days. We met Ms Czesia Szczyp. here. Tenia looks healthier now, slightly tanned (lack of good weather) and rested. I spent very little money, considering today’s prices. Tickets, accommodation and the entire 3-week stay cost only 9000. Best regards M.K. Dear Daddy, It’s been a long time since I had as many experiences as now, and I feel great. Today we visited the cathedral in Oliwa. It has a wonderful organ that I’m sure you’ve heard about. In a few days, we will go to Łódź. Daddy, I will send you a lot of our photographs from Oliwa. Now we are going to the pier with Ms. Czesia, whom we accidentally ran into in Gdańsk. Yours, Tenia
