Samah Al-Jundi says she felt like a teenager when she met Klaus Werner Pfaff. They looked each other in the eyes and fell in love. Divorced in their 50s, they were both ready for a new start. Klaus’ family had no objections to the relationship, but Samah’s Muslim family was outraged by the fact that she was marrying a Christian. She refused to give in. Today, she misses her family and country and does not feel completely at home in Germany. But Klaus is doing everything he can to help her adapt. What both say is most important is that they’ve found each other.
