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.
