As far as I know, this is the only photograph I have of my grandfather.

It’s terrible to think that whoever moved into our families’ apartments and shops and houses will have destroyed so much. Still, in the wider context, I am probably fortunate to have this much.

Leopold looks elegant and handsome. I’m grateful that we have this photograph.
