  • I am very grateful to fate for what she brought me with kind and responsive people which I found oddly not at home in Ukraine and in Europe! It all began from the moment when I have a computer! A little about the past! My family and I my mother all my life, my mother's two brothers of "Helictite Ivan and Nicholas who were deported to Germany during the second world war! The Soviet authority in such cases included naplevatelski for all her citizens that not even on their own outside of the USSR became traitors! So a year ago, after fruitless searching I accidently found on the Web address of the international tracing service in Germany and wrote back on e-mail query about the fate of my relatives! During the week I got all information about their stay in Germany! The elder Uncle Ivan Ilyich Titov got to Buchenwald resistance violence then in its branch of Noengamme concentration camp where he died in 20 years of starvation and disease! His ashes were buried at the central cemetery in the town of Wittenberg near Town Hall along with the dead soldiers that liberated the city! Echoing Uncle also died in Germany and is buried at the military cemetery in the town of Wittstock! Thanks to the help of circle of friends Memorial Noengamme us with her daughter visit was organized to the graveyard sites.

Where to stay in Hamburg

The most dynamic part of the city is the St. Pauli area, also known as Kiez. This is where tourists and locals brush shoulders among the many bars, shops, and sites. Jungfernsteig, or Neuer Wall, is an upmarket area with brand name shopping and luxury dining. Consider a stay in the bohemian quarters of Altona or the Sternschanze/Schanzenviertel. These areas burst with character and offer out-of-the-ordinary shopping and dining experiences at lower prices.
