It may surprise you three Comrades but many people on the forum are very
pleased to hear that you and your wives are all well.

I believe that multiculturalism has been an utter failure not only in Germany but many
other countries including Canada and England. Change is something that always takes
place (nothing stays the same neither good nor bad) whether we like or want it. Its life.
You guys have lived through many changes and you still survive, and hopefully so will
we all .

Some inappropriate comments concerning Muslims and Israel were removed. Please be careful what you say here as we don't want others forming the wrong conclusions about Feldgrau or its members.

Mea Culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa. !
Thank you John, for being the watchdog to keep us on the straight and narrow (Seriously !!!)
I realize that some of my comments may have been seen as anti- something, or similar.
To set the record straight, I want our members to know that I have no problem with any religion or race.
My father's mother was a jew, so therefor was he; I was not because my mother was not .
As an ex-criminal by association, (Waffen SS member), :( , I know how it feels to be "profiled".
I guess with old age, not always comes wisdom.
I DO have problems with those who hide behind the "'phobias" screen though, but agree that this forum is not the place to vent feelings about that.
And Annelie ! you are correct, multiculturalism did not work in Europe, and it won't here; so let's hope for the best for the future.
"Nuf said".
Peace be with all of you.

Es ist doch phantastisch zu sehen dass es hier WWII Veteranen geben. Ich hoffe nicht dass sie meine anfrage hier unpassend finden.

Mein Großvater war in der Kriegsmarine und ich suche ihn oder seiner Familie seit einiger Zeit. Hier ins Forum search.php?search_id=egosearch und auch hier http://www.krigsboern.dk/efterlysninger ... gning3.htm
Dass heißt dass meine Mutter ein Kriegskind ist. (Ich habe nicht WAST angeschrieben weil ich nicht so viele Einzelheiten habe.)

Ich weiß dass es immer noch viele Kriegskinder geben, die der suche nach ein Vater nicht aufgegeben haben. Dafür kann ich nur dazu auffordern alle Väter sich zu melden (und dass ist nur als ein positives Ding gemeint). Aber auch von Kameraden zu erzählen, falls sie es gewünscht haben.

Nach dem Krieg war es sehr schwer ein Kind von einem Deutschen Soldaten zu sein (siehe u.a. http://www.krigsboern.dk , „Mindestens zwanzigtausend Kinder haben deutsche Wehrmachtsangehörige in Dänemark und in Norwegen gezeugt. Einige von ihnen waren auch nach Ende des Krieges noch grausamen Repressionen ausgesetzt, die meisten litten 'nur' unter Schande und Scham, vielen wurde die Herkunft verschwiegen und bis in die 80er-Jahre hinein war ihnen der Zugang zu ihren Akten verwehrt. Seit ein paar Jahren haben sich einige von ihnen organisiert und kämpfen gemeinsam um ihre Geschichte und um ihr Recht, in Norwegen auch vor Gericht“ http://www.krigsboern.dk/artikler/von_v ... singer.htm)

Weil die Mütter so Stigmatisiert (und oft auch traumatisiert) waren, wollte sie ganz oft gar nichts über der Vater erzählen. Und die Kinder konnte erst der suche beginnen nach der Tot der Mutter.

Es gibt mehrere Vereine für Kriegskinder.
In Dänemark: http://www.krigsboern.dk
Europäische Kringskindervereine: http://www.bowin.eu/

Ich hoffe dass mein deutsch verständlich ist und dass alles was ich hier geschrieben habe, in ein positiver sinne erfassen werden.

There are some interesting English links above.
Particularly those of Children of War. Children being born of German Fathers.

http://www.bowin.eu/

there are others if someone is interested in case the post doesn't get translated.

Translation to english

It is fantastic to see that there still is weterans of WWII here. I hope that you do not find my post here inappropriate.

My grandfather was in the Kriegsmarine and I am trying to find him or his family. I have been trying for a while, in this forum search.php?search_id=egosearch and other places http://www.krigsboern.dk/efterlysninger ... ning3.htm. That means that my mother was a child of war (I haven’t asked at WAST because I do not have a lot of details, yet)

I know that there still a lot of Kriegskindern (children of war) looking for their father. Therefore, can I only apel to all fathers of Kriegskinder that they “turn themselves in” (this is only meant in a very friendly way). And also to tell about old Kameraden, if they had wanted their children to know.

After the war, it was very difficult to be a child of a German soldier. See eg. here http://www.krigsboern.dk (mostly in Danish and German) and here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_children

The mothers were stigmatised (and often traumatised as well) and therefore they often didn’t want to tell about the father. The children could not begin the search before their mother had died.

There are several forums for children of war
In Denmark http://www.krigsboern.dk
In European http://www.bowin.eu/
for children of American soldiers http://www.gitrace.org

I hope that what I have written here is taken in a positive spirit

Well, as I wrote in the german post.
I hope you can understand what I am trying to formulate. I just discovered a few mistakes in the text :oops:

Although i am not Rudi S., thank you for the Easter Wishes Annelie.
And of course that goes for my old comrades if they are still around, as well as the other forum members, too.

Hallo Annelie,

I hope that Rudi Salvermoser is still around, but you know, we are getting older and older and sometimes you don't want to do
something on the PC, particularly you have to take care of your wife day and night.It doesn't matter, I like to do it, because she
was here for me for about 62 years and I can give a little back.

So I wish you, dear Annelie, my good old friend Hugo and all the others
very happy Easter 2011
Rudi

Happy Easter to all and everyone ----
I last heard from Rudi last August 2010 - he had moved to the area outside of Orlando, Florida and he seemed to be in quite good health and cheer at the time (he said he was still doing OK in spite of his "advanced youth" stage) and I hope he still is!
Cheers,

Hello all,
thanks for your concern.
Yes, I am still around and plan to be for a while.
I'd like to wish all of you also a Happy Easter! Idon't know for certain, but I believe that I have you informed that we have been living in Florida (near Disney World) for 2 years.
Healthwise, I am still doing so-so, but thanks to the good doctors I have, I still plan to make it to 100 (God willing).
Recht viele Gruesse von Orlando,
Rudi

I just wanted to stop in and say hellp to Mr. Salvermoser. It's been a while since I've visited the forum but I still hold him in high regard and really appreciate him sharing his experiences with all of us.

Much love to you,
Brooke
