The ancestors on my mother's side are descendent from Charlottenburg. This can be traced back to the immigration, to Peter Pingerth. I was born in Timisoara (1954) but, I lived until the age of eight, nearly uninterrupted, in Carlottenburg. I attended there the first class and learned to read and write at the light of a paraffin lamp as it was still habit those days in Charlottenburg. Later I passed all my holidays, from the first to the last day, in the village.
As a teenager I moved house several times from one place to the other, this "circle" remained always my reference point.

I will dedicate these pages in the global village to this wonderful little place on earth and to all the people who made it possible to keep it in mind in the related way.
