My German roots
Komm und lass uns Deutsch sprechen….
I am German and lived in Bochum, a town close to Dortmund in the Ruhr-Valley area, for thirty one years. There, I went to a Primary school (Grundschule) named ‘Hohe Eiche’ (tall oak) after the road it is located. I continued my education at the local Grammar school called ‘Lessing Gymnasium’ named after a well know German writer of classical literature, Gotthold Ephraim Lessing (1729 to 1781). I passed my A-levels (Abitur) in 1984, the most famous George Orwell year. My final A-level subjects were Maths, Physics, Geography and German.
