|Lutz and Antje Beranek with their gift.|
My story, A Father's Stories Come to Life, is the one that made the cut. It was inspired, when Lutz Beranek, his son, Marcel and sister, Marianne came to Manitoba a few years ago. Lutz and Marianne's dad, Richard Beranek was a prisoner of war in the 1940's and they wanted to see some of the places he saw. Because their dad always spoke fondly of Canada and told them many interesting stories of his time here, they became fascinated with our country as well, and dreamed about visiting one day. (I wrote about that visit here.)
|"Footprints in Canada!"|
I loved Lutz' thoughts on this: "We too left footprints in Canada, for our stories were published in the Parkland Newspaper, twice in the Winnipeg Free Press, and in two of your books." I mentioned Richard Beranek in my story about German POW in Hutterite Diaries, of which he got a copy as well.
Vielen Dank, Lutz und Antje! Viel Spass beim Lesen!
