A History Lost Oct 7, 2010
Being that this is my family's heritage and there is no spoken history of this time by our parents but it is the closest I have to this missing period. My mother recently read this and acknowledged that this was albeit, with a few variations, very, very similar to her history but that was all she would say. My brother also read it and now whenever they sit down to a meal they think of Gunter and his family and every meal they struggled for. It is very humbling but makes you want to understand more of why and how these people came to this place and why they were held accountable for so much and in many, many instances rightfully so. Sometimes we have to know what our shame was and how we earned it, not just feel it. But the story to me was clear, vivid and very, very representative of the people I know and have known, I just never knew where they fit in in the world. Thank you Gunter!
