A Ribbon in Many Lights
by Arthur H. G. Mittermaier
Arthur was born in Port Elizabeth, South Africa in 1931, and lived on a remote farm with his parents and brothers. His parents were of German origin. They decided to return to Germany due his father's poor health. But they picked the wrong time: they arrived in July 1939, to Berlin, just before the Second World War began. Abruptly, Arthur was swallowed up by things that were beyond his control.
