FRANK GEORGE

Frank George is my neighbor with whom I have special bond.  Both of us were born in the same European city met, and got to know each other, thousands of miles away from it - in Stamford, Connecticut.  The German city that Frank was born in was called Breslau, and the Polish city  that I was born in is called Wroclaw.  This is the same geographical place, however due to the outcome of the Second World War the German city of Breslau became Polish city of Wroclaw.  

So here is my dedication to Wroclaw/Breslau  and Frank -  we who were born in this city will always feel affinity, kinship, bond, rapport, understanding (add more synonyms if you like) with the place and each other.  Frank George, retired architect, excellent storyteller and good friend.
