Uncle - was a contrary to my grandfather. His background was a jewish merchantfamily and his life was like trade - up and down. He possessed a rare charm, a wonderful sense of humour, intelligence and belonged to that cathegory of humans, who didn´t extract all his skills so to speak. He worked in Germany under WW1 (Hamburg) and WW2 (Dresden), in which he survived and escaped the "White Tuesday" ( 02/13/45) under adventurious circumstances. During most of his life he was a true womanizer and became a teacher for me too in that interesting subject. He was attached with great love, respect and cherishment to my grandfather ( his brother in law) all included in their mutual lifelines ( 1916-1971), which concreted his role as mentor for me. He stayed unmarried all his life in Odense and slept quietly into the death full of the life by the age of 83 y.o.
He was my favourite uncle to the very end.

Onkel - var en modsætning til min bedstefar. Hans baggrund var en jødisk handelsslægt og hans liv formede sig som handel gør: Op og ned. Han besad intelligens, en sjælden charme og en vidunderlig humor. Han hørte til den slags mennesker, der kunne have fået betydeligt mere ud af sine evner. Han var en stor dameven og hans mentorrolle overfor mig inkluderede dette interessante område. Han arbejdede og boede i Tyskland under 1.verdenskrig ( Hamburg) og 2 verdenskrig (Dresden). Han oplevede og overlevede den hvide tirsdag ( 13.febr. 1945) under spektakulære omstændigheder, hvilket gav meget anderledes perspektiver på livet. Han havde et mangeårigt, varmt og nært forhold til sin svoger ( bedstefar), hvilket bidrog til en yderligere cementering af hans mentorrolle. Han boede hele sit ugifte liv i Odense, hvor han sov roligt ind i døden mæt af dage i en alder af 83 år.
Min absolutte yndlingsonkel !
