The Factory in the Worker’s Life

An Autobiography (4)

I write this autobiography because I want to tell about the period, the family and the town I was born into and the life I had. I want to tell my story so that those who come after us, children and grandchildren and others, can read and get to know the past a little. I think that when we know the past, our history, we also get to know ourselves a little better.
