I thought my father was a criminal

Reunion with father

“It was such a terribly sad encounter for me because across from me was sitting a person that I could not hate, I loved him, but he was a sad person, always looking over his shoulder. And I realised that they basically released him from one prison into another one. He never said a word, apparently he was being watched. I was a naughty child and because I am a straightforward person I wanted to know the truth. But I never learnt it until 1989. ”
