A Family History

The three-part series relates the life stories of families who left their homes in Romania, Kazakhstan and Upper Silesia and came to Germany, their old home country where their family has its roots.

Part 1: The Heinrichs from Kazakhstan

In part 1 we tell the story of the Heinrichs clan who live near Detmold. Four generations of them, running a successful car dealership. Hardly anyone knows exactly where they’re from. Even the Heinrichs themselves hardly ever talk about it. As a child, senior partner Hans almost starved to death in Siberia. His wife Lina once became the world queuing champion in Taraz, a town in Kazakhstan.

The Heinrichs’ life after the Second World War was an odyssey, but they never gave up hope of one day being able to reach West Germany. By the time they got the permit to travel in 1978 they could hardly remember any German. So they battled on undaunted, learning the language again and building a business. Their diligence, humility and stamina eventually paid off.
