My two year old cousin Horst seems to like me! It’s not summer yet, but it must be quite warm already.
Enjoying a bath. These small bath-tubs were quite common in those days. But they are really meant for doing the washing.
Oh, what fun it is to look out of the window.!

Dad’s younger brother Ludwig (Onkel Luttek) is visiting in Berlin and takes me for a walk. I am two years old.
In 1939 we were for summer vacation in Zoppot, a Baltic Sea resort.
There were donkey rides available for children. I was overjoyed when I was allowed to have a ride. A lot of Dad’s family spent the holidays with us in a rented apartment in Zoppot. I remember the apartment was in a tower-like building. We were right at the top. Looking out of the window we could sea far out onto the sea.
In September 1938 cousin Ursula came for a visit to Berlin.
I am just four years old., Ursel just turned eleven.
