|I was born 1938 in Norden Ostfriesland, in the very
of Lower Saxony, Germany.
In spite of the very negative accompaniments and consequences of the Second World War I had, together with my two brothers and many good friends, an eventful and nice childhood there.

of the North German Broadcast (NDR) for Lower Saxony, Hannover in the
for audio- and television production.
My hobbies are: classical music, chess playing, computer technics, taking pictures and image processing.

a job in Addis Abeba, Ethiopia, East Africa, with Radio Voice of the
a radio station of the Lutheran World Federation Geneva, for a period
three years (1965 - 1968).
There I helped young Ethiopians with the education towards production - technicians. This was my portion on economic aid to developing countries.
