One week ago, on Saturday the11th of June, we went to Alt-Spandau. It was a market day. In Germany June is the time for white asparagus (Spargel) and all sorts of berries (Beeren).
In the picture it says “frisch vom Hof”. This means the things for sale are fresh from the nearby country site and presumably organically grown (bio). I think that day we bought ca. 125 gram of blueberries for 1,50 Euros (a bit over two Australian Dollars).
It was the 11th of June, just a few days after Daniel’s birthday. We did meet Daniel and quite a few relatives for a family get together for lunch at the BRAUHAUS IN SPANDAU.
We left home on the 2nd of June and arrived in Berlin on the 4th of June. We are going to depart again in a little over two weeks. Time goes quickly – I took already some 300 pictures!
So far we’ve been out and about every day. Today I chose to stay in our apartment on my own while the others went to Neukoeln. For tonight we have tickets for the Komische Oper. They show The Magic Flute in a modern version.
I am 6 months in this photo from 1935. I think, this is about the only picture I have of Grandmother Olga. She was my ‘Omi’ and I was always very happy when she came to visit in Berlin. I also loved to stay at Omi’s place in Leipzig.
The above picture is from the beginning of 1944. We lived in the country east of Berlin away from the air raids over Berlin. I am in the picture together with two and a half year old brother Peter-Uwe and friend Eva.
Here I am during that same winter with five and a half year old brother Bodo and two year old brother Peter-Uwe. I am only a bit over nine years old.
In that photo I am about six months. Mum is holding me. I think this photo was taken in our apartment in Taunusstrasse, Berlin-Friedenau.
This photo was taken when my brother Bodo was about four and a half months and I would have just turned four years.Our cousin Ursula from Lodz, who was on a visit to Berlin, is holding baby Bodo. we are on the balcony of our apartment in Bozener Strasse, Berlin Schöneberg.
The above picture was obviously taken in winter, maybe also in 1937.
This beach is in Graal/Müritz at the Baltic Sea. We had gone gone there for a summer holiday.
