Okka uploaded some old family photos yesterday. This is my Mom and I on the day of my christening in 1957….
Me at age 6 in 1964….
On the day we left Germany to join our father in the US in the summer of 1968. I think the ship was called the Hanseatic, I’ll have to ask my Mom. All our belongings were in two large wooden crates. Look at all the clothes we had on…..7 days later we arrived in New York and it was 107 degrees…..
How scary that must have been for our Mom to get rid of all of our belongings, pack the three of us up, say goodbye to family and friends not knowing if and when she would see them again and go to a strange land to start all over again.
My Mom’s a gutsy lady :)
