The following link takes you to the only interview of my great aunt Ilse Hanauer. This was recorded in July, 2001 by Juliette Hanauer, who was also the person interviewing Ilse.
Ilse discusses her 5 year (1936-1941) engagement to Adolph Koch. It seems to me that Adolph had to break off his engagement to Ilse because she was of Jewish heritage.
Ilse passed away on December 23, 2002.
Please watch this 18 minute, 46 second interview.
Today would have been my father’s 72nd birthday!
I miss you Daddy, love you 4-ever!
I pray that one day I will be able to share your story!
As time passes each day, we are given little blessings along the way!
Enjoy all your blessings on this beautiful day!
It’s hard to believe as I go through my documentation on my family in Berlin, Germany, I see economic distress with my great grandparents and their friends, a little too similar to the economic distress of our country and many other countries around the world! I sure hope we don’t have to witness anything close to what the Nazis exhibited against humanity!
Will we ever see world peace? God only knows!
It’s crazy to think that a library in London would buy my family book. I’m just this little person in the midst of the entire world and they found my book! It is just one more amazing blessing in my life!
Through the rocky roads of my life, I see that Jesus walked beside me to guide me.
I did not know he was there at the time, how amazing to see it now!
Thank you Lord for not giving up on me!
