Early Memories

This blog does bring back to me a lot of memories!


Before I was three we lived in Taunus Strasse, Berlin- Friedenau. Some time during 1937 we moved to Bozener Strasse in Berlin-Schöneberg. This is where Tante Ilse and Onkel Addi lived as well and also my friend Cordula and her parents. Later on we did get to know Family T. who lived in the house opposite our apartment building.

During my early childhood Bozener Strasse was a very quiet street. There were no cars parked in the street.

Tante Ilse had this narrow but very long balcony with a lot of plants to water. As a two year old I loved to help with watering some of the plants!

Uta loves to water the plants. Mum is looking on. Uta loves to water the plants. Mum is looking on.

Here Mum still has this “Bubikopf” which I believe became fashionable already in the 1920s.

    1. In the above picture, which was taken in Bozener Strasse on 21st September 1947, my brother Peter is nearly six. I stand behind Peter. I turned thirteen on this day. My brother Bodo is on the left. He is nine. Beside him Eva Todtenhausen, who is going on twelve and beside Eva is Cordula who is twelve.

  1. It is an honor to read about your family, your friends, and your life, SweetUta.

    1. Yes, Carolyn, these photos bring back a lot of memories. This goes to 1947, when I had my 13th birthday! 🙂
      Soon, I may have my 88th birthday, for I was born in 1934. 🙂
      Thanks for the comment, dear Carolyn. 🙂
      HUGS yours Uta

  2. I don’t know, Linda, whether future generations will be able to access my blogs. As you know, the original post was 1,203 words. and was published by WordPress on the 2nd of June 2013.

    What actually is going to happen to all this writing after we pass away. Do you know, how this works, Linda?

    I would like to save all my memory writing for future generations. I remember Peter saying, I ought to save it in a cloud. I wished I had learned at the time, how to do it!
