Feliks Szerejko

My grandfather's older brother Feliks lived his life in Warsaw.  He is pictured above with his second wife, Leokadia (Szymanska), his daughter Celina (Gzell), and his son Aleksander.  My grandmother's sister Helen Bulak stayed with Feliks and his family during the summer of 1937 on her trip to Poland.  Celina and Aleksander survived World War II.  Feliks and Leokadia did not.

They look kind of sad in the photo like they knew what was coming. Although I know they did not.
Good work on keeping those daily posts coming!!

Kristin - They do look kind of sad. I thought the same thing myself. So far I'm keeping up with the daily posts, but it's only been one week. I'm hoping my energy doesn't start to lag. Thanks for the encouragement!
