Family is the most important thing for us

The Buzek Family has always embraced the memories about their ancestors and has passed those on from generation to generation, through learning to respect family and treasure those memories as the only thing that no one can take away from a person.We are well aware of the great power which can be drawn from tradition, history and how big part of the future the past holds.

Although life pace has increased, still we find the time to do some 'time travelling' and we do everything in order for future generations to have something to look back on as well. We fulfil this task by organising frequent meetings of the Buzek Family. First of such events took place in 1976, in the Bielsko-Biała Parish estate. For the second one we travelled 19 years later to Siemoradz near Skoczów. Nearly eighty people attended the first reunion; even more family members attended the second one. Tables were filled with a famous regional cake called 'cieszynskie kołacze', a yeast cake with sweet white cheese and crumble. People sitting at the tables represented various branches of the family, all prepared to present the history of their family to the others. Presentations conducted in the form of sharing memories and old photographs, anecdotes and funny stories, and touching tales. Later all attended a sermon in the evangelical church, dinner and more sharing of family stories and plans for forthcoming meetings - hopefully to take place in the nearby future. The Family is the most important thing for us.
