Hansi Foks' 100th



Hansi Foks’ 100th
Recently I showed the German Conversation group a video that I had prepared in 2007 for the 100th anniversary of my mother’s birth.  In it I told her story from her birth in the old Austro-Hungarian empire, going on to her involvement in the cabaret and artistic movements in pre-war Berlin and Paris, her experiences as a refugee in France and Switzerland, her coming to Australia in 1947 and how she coped as a single mother over here.  The group responded well, due at least in part to so many of them having also lived through those times in Europe and Australia.  If you would like to take a look, click on the following link: http://youtu.be/4ZhROK9TxzQ
