As a companion to the Kindle book, this site is intended to introduce potential readers to the material as well as to be a resource for those who have already read Onkel Hayn’s story, and have developed an interest in the characters and events portrayed in his memoirs. The information presented here is admittedly subjective and biased, chosen according to what and who is of particular interest to me and my family, and makes no claim to be the work of a historian or genealogical expert. As for the choice to write the site in English – although I am fluent in German, it was simply much easier for me to write in my native language. I apologize to my readers for this inconvenience.
If anyone has information to add to the site, or simply wants to get in touch, we would welcome hearing from you. You can contact us at: onkelhayn at gmail.com
