The ancestors on my mother's side are descendent from Charlottenburg. I was born in Timișoara/Temeswar (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. In that place I learned to ride a bike and watched the first moon landing. 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, my homeland.

I will dedicate these pages 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.
