I found out, that my mother as a child went to school in Stargard / Poland; I am living now in Germany near Cologne, I’ve never been in Poland, but now I would like to search for my roots there near the Baltic Sea coastline; my mother lived in Cybowo – I found that via google earth; I have to thank movski, who sent his pavilion photo to some of my flickr-groups; this pavilion is in the neighborhood of Cybowo I suppose, my mother left Poland 1945 during that bad World War II

for to translate the German part into English I’ve added an html-code:

über google earth fand ich heraus, dass meine Mutter, Edith Klingbeil, im heutigen Cybowo (damals Gutsdorf) geboren worden sein muss, in Polen. 1945, während jenes fürchterlichen zweiten von Deutschland angezettelten Weltkrieges floh sie von dort Richtung Westen. Ich wurde während der Flucht, auf dem Weg meiner Mutter von Prag zur Insel Rügen: in Wuppertal, West-Deutschland, geboren und dort in einem Waisenheim zurückgelassen. Nach 65 Jahren steige ich, mit dem Finger Einträge auf alten Schul-Atlanten mit google earth abgleichend, allmählich dahinter, wo meine Wurzeln zu liegen scheinen. Es amüsiert mich, über das Internet Fotos von Cybowo (Gutsdorf, klingt heute fast wie das mir geläufige Wort COWBOY) zu finden, die ein kleines Musik-Ensemble abbilden (mit Gitarristen), welches in einem dortigen Gutshof kleine Konzerte gibt. Nun, ich spiele auch gerne Gitarre. Scheinbar fällt tatsächlich der Apfel nicht weit vom Stamm.

got a friendly e-mail by movski / Michał Orłowski, Stargard, Poland, about the costs to go back to my roots:
A weekend ticket which would bring you to Szczecin costs 25 euro, then from Szczecin to Stargard another 2 euro and a night in a hotel in Stargard would be around 30 euro per night. So basically only for a weekend jump out it would cost you much much under 100 euro. Doesn’t look too bad 😉

the composition NUAGES by django reinhardt helps me to imagine, that I could join the clouds on their journey to Poland, to that little lake, where my mother once was born: near Stettin, Stargard, Kallies, Dramburg, Gutsdorf – maybe these cities and villages – or their names – do not exist anymore; the name of the little lake was ANKROW lake – I should try to search via google …
