Lviv in People's Lives
Joseph Conrad: When I was 10 years old, my father and I moved here, in 1867. My father was drawn to this city, which was at the time a part of Austrian-Poland, for its free and independent political status. We moved to Krakow in 1869. I moved back to this city in 1873, at the age of 15. Much in my life had changed since the last time that I was here - my father had died, leaving me an orphan, and I had been taken in by my uncle, and also become fascinated with sailing. My uncle sent me here to attend a boy's boarding school, where conversation and lessons were in French. I disliked the school's dull routine, and still suffered from severe headaches. I took comfort in telling grand stories to my classmates and the owner's daughter. My uncle took me back to Krakow after I had been here for a little over a year, in September of 1874.
