My name is Krzysztof Biega, Canadian citizen, born in Dębna, Poland in 1944. In 1961, I graduated from the Sanok High School and went to Warsaw to study at the
Agriculture University, at the Wood Technology Faculty. I received my diploma in 1966. I regret that, like so many others in Poland at that time, i joined the so-called "Peoples' Party" as this was the only way to reach the university and to get administrative jobs.
Later I became mayor of the town Zagórz, a few kilometers south-east of Sanok. In 1981 I joined the "Solidarity" movement, as a result I was denied a passport. Fortunately, as a result of the thaw following the "Round-table" talks in 1989 (see Solidarity page) I was able to get a passport and
emigrated with my wife Ala and settled
in Toronto, Canada.
Here are some pictures. Then there will be more about my family.
Here is some of my family history.
We have two daughters, Ela (Elzbieta) and Jolanta.

and the home page of the village of Mrzygłód, text only in Polish, but many great photos.
