Dead memory

Second world war, 1942.

A girl was born, fruit of the love between a French woman and a German soldier.
On denunciation, the young man is sent on the Russian front where he dies a bit further.

This girl is my mother.

It is only at the age of 40 that I was able to talk about this story with my grandmother.
Few informations on this man:

His name: Paul Thiemann
His village: Morrn
His region: Landsberg Warthe

2005, I went in this region, now Polish, in search of tracks,… to evoke his memory.
