I understand its not always possible to take such a trip for a variety of reasons.
Medically is the first reason. Financially we can't afford a team of medical workers or I would be on the next plane out of this hell hole USA. I would have to look into getting him a current passport from Germany. He is not a US citizen. When we traveled to Germany in 1977 he was not granted a visa to come into Poland??? I do not know the reason, I was to young. Crushed him to be so close but yet so far.
I am sure the paperwork is an issue and it would take some time. But then there is the $$.
If I could get my father back to his home I would, believe me. But I can't.
So I do what I can for him by bringing his home to him. His eyes still tell you the pain of being drafted at age 14 , captured and spent 5 years as a POW and then never allowed to go home. he is a tough old man but that child I see ! Breaks my heart...........
If anyone knows that cematary name in Bretow ( he says that was the name) let me know?
Maybe I could contact someone to see if graves exist.
