His interest in the Second World War already manifested at the age of twelve. It was also then that he started collecting materials and stories of that time. Over time his personal collection grew to become the present collection of the museum. In his opinion, it is important to pass on the stories of the Second World War, especially to the youth, so that they will not get lost and will hopefully serve as a warning for future generations not to end up in those same dark times.
