You mentioned about your childhood that you had a very good childhood ... are there any memories that you can relate, about your parents?

Yes, I know and ... my grandfather and my father they were very rich people, capitalist, and when Tito came in power they lost their property and new system, but all land what you have they give some other people but they give you only ten hectares per family, what was enough. My father hated he did not like it but I recognize something was different. I thought Tito was right. He was helping poor people, he was helping middle class. He was helping with education. Everything was free. When I was at university at school I did not have to pay anything. You have free accommodation, you have free house. You do not have to pay fee. You have a job. Everything was OK. And one day my father told me 'My son, I was wrong, Tito was right.' I was so pleased to hear from my dad who hate him in the beginning but at the end he change his mind.
