IamA 91yo woman who grew up in Western Germany, married a German physicist for 60 years, and moved to the US in 1953, AMA!
Grandson here with proof! Ask away in English or German (although English will probably result in faster replies). Thanks!
She grew up during WWII, went to college in Germany, opened a German deli in California and live in CA still, where her grandchildren are visiting her.
*EDIT: she is going to bed now, but she really enjoyed doing this and we will likely answer some more questions tomorrow. Thanks!
