Letters from Germany - 1919 - Before Forced Emigration


The following is a letter from Alexander Braunhart, living in Schubin, Germany to his daughter Anna, who had immigrated to America in 1909 and at the time of the letter was living in Brooklyn, New York. It was just a short time after this letter that the last Braunhart and their entire family was forced out of their ancestral home in Schubin to live in Berlin.

The handwritten German version is presented first, followed by the letter translated from German to English.  The translation is limited due to the poor handwriting in Alexanders' original letter.

It is obvious from this letter, that conditions in Schubin had diminished to the extent, that living there was no longer an option for the remainder of the Braunhart family.
