This is a photograph of me. It was taken in 1958 in Lvov. In 1958 I graduated from university, and this photograph hung on the blackboard.

Before the war I hadn't finished commerce academy. But when I returned from the army, I finished school by attending part-time. I finished 10th grade and then entered university. I graduated from university in Lvov, in 1958, from the Faculty of Economics. I became an economics engineer. At that time I already had the job of director. I was director of Remont for 25 years. They hadn't had something like this here before. Why? Because they stole. Everyone wondered how it was possible that Mesko is a town council member for 48 years straight, and for 25 years the director of Remont. He didn't build anything for himself, no house, no cottage. Since he got married he lives in the same apartment. Actually, this apartment isn't even mine, it's my wife's. She was an only child, she had no other siblings.
