Paternal family continued
The first photo is of the two brothers, my father Erich and his younger brother Curt. I especially placed it because I wanted you to see it. It is one of the photos I rescued from the manure pile. The Russians had emptied our big silver bowl containing all the family photos on that unlikely place. It is one of the very few photos that exist of our family before the end of WWII. Of all the ones I rescued, this is in the worst shape. No, we did not have it restored for sentimental reasons.
The second photo shows my Granny with all her living children – but taken about eight years after the war. I have none from the time before 1945.
Stay tuned for one more to complete my paternal family
