Immigrant, New York City, Swiss, Swiss bank
After I had volunteered at our annual meeting last year to tell you today something about my life as an immigrant in New York City, I forgot all about it until recently when Leo [Schelbert] asked me to give him the title of my lecture. My goodness, I thought, I really put my foot in this time, but I am glad I did because after the very serious discussion we just had, we all need to relax, to wind down, and even laugh a little. For about two years now I have given similar lectures with slides to various groups in Switzerland and I am going to extract some parts of that lecture, especially my experiences as an auxiliary police officer with the New York City Police Department. I also want to show you that New York is not the cold and inhuman place it is said to be.
