About the author:
Claire Ohlsson Geheb discovered the material for this book when her husband found an old suitcase filled with letters to and from Germany. After having the letters translated she realized that the quality of the writing and the historical content would be of interest to many people. She believes this is a story, not only for German Americans, but for all Americans who want to understand the impact of the immigrant experience and the difficulties of the families left behind.

Dear Willy,

The True Story of a Life Well Lived

Authored by Claire Ohlsson Geheb
Authored with Willy Oswald Geheb
Edition: 2

Dear Willy, The True Story of a Life Well Lived tells the story of a German American immigrant and his family that stayed in Germany during the tumultuous years of 1914 to 1947. This social history is told by the ordinary people who experienced WWI, the Wiemar Republic, Hitler's rise, WWII, and the aftermath of WWII in Germany. Willy Geheb, after immigrating to America, carefully saved all the correspondence with his family and asked them to save his letters as well. This compilation of journals and letters brings the reader back in time to share the lives of the Geheb family. They survived through love, faith, and perseverance. Historic commentary has been added to clarify the times in which they were living.
