About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

Ve Begin Mit Poland: 1938

Ve Begin Mit Poland: 1938

Washington, D.C., 1938. "Dieter Tannenberg, son of the First Secretary of the German Embassy and Frau Tannenberg." Harris & Ewing. View full size.

 

But maybe we'll stay in der USA

According to the German wikipedia, dad passed away 17 April 1983 in Bad Pyrmont, not far from Hameln Germany. He spent 45-46 in a POW camp, but from then supported the allied occupying government with the democratization & denazification process in Germany.

There is a Dieter Tanneberg, born 1932, living in Barrington IL, which would fit. Don't have any genealogy accounts to dig further though

Nicht Hamburg!

Dieter has his - ahem - business finger pointing to Bremen, or just a little NE of Bremen.

This makes sense since his father Wilhelm Tannenberg, was born in Bremen. Dieter, like ET probably just wants to go "home"

Hamburg is about 2 inches farther NE.

75 Years Later

Being the last one on the planet who does not know how to look up family histories, etc. does anyone know if Dieter is still alive today since he would not have been more than 10 when this was taken. Secondly, I do realize the horror, wastefulness and atrocities of war, but I have to agree with Bolek that your title was clever and funny.

Alas...

Der junger Dieter is pointing out Hamburg with his little finger.

I want a hamburger

Can we go to Hamburg?

Good title

Greetings from Poland!

Flipping the bird

Apparently young Dieter isn't very happy about Poland; based on his particular gesture.
