Auf Meiner Seite Väter (on My Father's Side)
I've been trying to take the time and learn the German language for a long time. I don't know much about my heritage at all. Except my Great grandmother.. I got to meet her before she passed, she was 100 years old... and we have the same first and last name. She thought my parents named me after her.. but my mother had no idea about her. She was always so happy to say.. when I pass there will ALWAYS be another _____(MY NAME) in the world!
Anyways she left Germany when the Holocaust was going on. She told my mother how she came to America by boat and the first thing she saw was the statue of liberty... She started to weep.. because she knew she was finally free! meine Urgroßmutter. She was the dearest, most fragile woman.
I hope to learn more about my heritage. You can tell I'm German from some of my looks.. But a lot of people think I'm Irish because of the red hair.. Maybe?! Unfortunately, I don't know all of my heritage and I don't know how to find out. But if you knew my last name it's a prominent (most popular) German name.
I also had a crush on this German foreign exchange student in high school, Vivian. She was gorgeous and the accent... so heiß :D
Anyways... Danke fürs Lesen
