“Who was he for me? – Talking to his brother helped. Everything was fine for a week…” – seventeenth fragment of Martha’s book

At work he made comments about who he doesn’t like, so that I would not befriend that person. Everything started to happen incredibly fast in those awkward situations. The phone was ringing off the hook and lots of texts. So I’ve decided to talk to his brother. He agreed to talk to him. I knew that I have to ignore his behavior and not to explain myself to him. Talking to his brother helped.  Everything was fine for a week…

It’s starting again… The worst month in the year…

Martha’s family is able to recognize Martha’s mood from the tone of her voice on the phone.
Is everything alright or not.

On last calls Martha is sad.
When pressed, she finally said:
“It’s 6 years already.
It’s the month.
I’m imagining Csaba’s family.
His Mother and Brother, when they stand over Csaba’s grave.”

Recently Martha’s family is very busy.
Last arrangements about further actions in Martha’s case are finalized.
Very important final meetings and arrangements.

“If you need this, If you can’t handle this, we will specially come to you”

“No, there’s no need”

After experiences of past 6 years, Martha’s family is exceptionally watchful in March.
Nevertheless it’s Martha who always reminds about this month.
It’s good that this year she reminded earlier, and not near March 26.

Not sleeping at night… thinking…wondering… analyzing what could be done differently, is starting again.
And there’s no counsellor around…
Everlasting trauma, returning with enormous power…

We thank very much to Martha’s friends in Ireland.
If it is possible please use all visit Martha is entitled to.
Thank you very much…

Women remember best those flowers which they didn’t get – No flower… just one candy and back to the cell… – International Women’s Day in Dochas Centre in Dublin

International Women’s Day in Dochas Centre in Dublin, Ireland…
It’s next Women’s Day for Martha spent in prison…
Every time something different…

And now?
How did March 8, 2019, look like in Dochas Centre in Dublin, Ireland?

Short meeting in the gym…
…Women sang 4 songs…
…got one chocolate candy each and… back to the cell…

Some women in Dochas Centre was counting for something, and got nothing…
Including Martha.
She hoped at least for some flower…

Romantic and accustomed to some values and traditions, Martha made herself hearts from the modelling clay, and put them in her cell…

 

Gifts made by Marta for her sister’s children

“I will be grateful to you till the end of my life, and I will do everything for our family to be always strong and loving…”

My beloved, I want to thank You for your kind hearts. That you are with me and you give me your support. I miss You so much every day, but I am happy that I have someone I can miss. That 6 minutes of phone call every day for me is like a dessert after dinner 😉 I am very lucky that I have such love and that I have You. Some women here don’t have that and it’s very hard for them, so I understand their behavior. Because of You giving me so much strength, I can pass it to some of the women here.
I know how much sacrifice and torment all of this costs You, I can’t even imagine how can I repay you for such kindness. I will be grateful to you till the end of my life, and I will do everything for our family to be always strong and loving. It’s my greatest treasure. You and our close ones. What’s more important? For me the most important is that we can hear each other, see each other, touch. And someday we will do this aaaall together.
And this thought, thanks to You, helps me to survive everything here. Nothing more is important. Do not worry, I want you to be proud of me, and I will be strong!
Because I love life, always thanks to You, it doesn’t matter what it is, but I’m not alone in it.

Thank You!

Love You!

“I wish for you and your close ones…”

We have somewhat foreseen the problems with sending Martha’s wishes for the family and people close.
Simply, after those few years we don’t expect anything good from Irish prison Service.
(Of course if something good will happen, we will acknowledge that and we will thank for it)

Foreseeing it, we’ve asked Martha to make a list of people to which she sends letters, right after sending.
Now we publish Martha’s list.

“Please tell Everyone, that I remember about them…”

On Wednesday, December 12, 2018, Marta gave the Irish prison service to send  postcards with wishes.
Various, individual wishes.
Even for the people who do not celebrate Christmas.
Postcards for thirty five people and their families.

We didn’t update the “Correspondence” link with this information.
We wanted it to be a surprise for the people who were meant to receive the postcards.
And so we waited, waited…
We were calm, but Martha was nervous…
She was nervous about that someone could think that she forgot about him or her…

“Please tell Everyone, that I remember about them…”

Currently, after over two months, the correspondence starts to arrive also to Poland.
What are the stamp dates?
February 8 and February 11, 2019.

Where was this correspondence between December 12, 2018, and February 8 or 11, 2019?
For two months…
Was it in Dochas Centre prison in Dublin in Ireland, all this time?
Did translating it take so much time?

Irish prison service has time…
Martha was sentenced for lifetime imprisonment, what difference does it make for Irish prison service, will the correspondence be sent today, in two months, or in two years…
With such level of spite from Irish prison service, maybe we should be happy that Martha’s correspondence was sent at all…
Maybe we should be thanking even for delayed humane impulses…
Maybe

We thank to the journalist and the journalists of Irish Daily Star for…

We would like to thank the journalist and journalists of Irish Daily Star.

Your findings…

Exactly…

Without our help or suggestions from us.
We will fill in our thanks in a few months, although we are already grateful.
