I  have known Michał since the early 1970’s when I made my first visits to Poland. Over the years, I recall your kind hospitality and generosity. It has always been a pleasure to be a guest in your house; and to sign your visitors book on many occasions.

         I have always admired Michał’s high standards in science, his sense of fairness, and his polite friendliness. In future, my visits to Kraków  will not be the same.
