As soon as I could, I went back to my hometown, Bistrita
, where I found my sister Rose and her husband. I wanted to see our family's old house. Rose tried to persuade me not to go in, but I did, and that was the first time that I broke down and cried, it was very painful. I remember entering the kitchen and there was a Hungarian woman living there. All our furniture was gone and everything was in the wrong place. Time just stopped for me in that moment; I just saw everything sort of flash through my mind. I finally broke down and cried and ran out of there. I had nothing to say to her; I just ran out and never went back again.
