Stories of Omi


For those of you who know me, you know that I was very close to my maternal grandmother, who I called Omi.

She lived through a lot in her life – including two World Wars while living in Germany, immigration to new countries, and much more.

I have really wanted to share her stories with the world for a long time now, but just haven’t been able to get myself to write the novelization of her life as a book.

So I’ve decided to start a blog and share all the stories and vignettes she shared with me over the years. These are her personal recollection of events that she related to me, as best as I can remember. I believe most of the stories are factual, but I also know that there had to be some fiction woven into them as well. Omi was very good at weaving a good story, even if it meant fudging some of the details at times.

Please read and share her stories, and I hope you find them interesting. This is one way for me to let her legacy live on the way she always dreamt it would.
