Last Monday 68 years ago, our (2nd) great-grandmother Johanna von Hinten passed away in Minden, Germany.
Today we remember my father Jupp, whose family relations were a closed book for us for a long time.
“By 1918 all but one of my close friends were dead.”
It would have been our (great-)grandmother 105th birthday this week.
“I cordially dislike allegory (…). I much prefer history, true or feigned, with its varied applicability to the thought and experience of the reader.”
