At age 18, Tom Doeppner was smuggled out of Nazi Germany. He was 26 before he saw anyone in his family again. Tom was my Grandfather, “Opa.” Cleaning out my Grandmother’s desk ten years ago, I found a small box where Opa had kept letters from his family, written as early as 1938. When I opened that box, I found a story that I never knew. This blog tells the story of what happened to Tom and his family in that decade of separation.

To all who have been following diligently - I have not forgotten this blog and project. I am starting a new job and as with all new things, the transition is all-consuming and takes my energy right on out the door. When the dust settles, I will get back into the routine of blogging, hopefully on a frequent basis. Thanks for your patience!
