An Afternoon with the Gremmlers in Schwanebeck, Germany
We drove from Worbis to Schwanebeck (with a construction detour thrown in) through the Harz Mountains. We arrived to Kurt Gremmler's house (yes...a Gremler with 2 m's in his name) just in time for lunch. Kurt is a nephew of my grandfather Ernest, who was born in Borne, Germany and moved to the U.S. in the early 1920s. (For a history of the Gremler/Gremmler family, click here.) His wife is Gitte; Gerhard is his son, Daniela his granddaughter, and Fabian his greatgrandson.
