|Welcome to my website
According to Duden, a "Reiseonkel" is someone who likes to travel. I am such a
"Reise-onkel". Travelling is my passion. In recent years New York, London, Paris, Rome, Edinburgh,
Venice, Sardinia, Australia, Ireland and Denmark have been my favourite destinations.
To limit the number of image files on the following pages, many photos are stored in PDF files or
as presentations in Google Drive. It may take a few seconds to open these files/presentations, depending
on their size and Internet speed. Beautiful pictures, however, compensate for somewhat longer loading
Besides travelling, my website is also about searching for traces. More specifically, it is about
the search for traces of Jewish life in my home town Hoya and the memory of the suffering of former
Jewish fellow citizens in the period of National Socialism.
