    This photograph was taken in Hamburg, Germany on 11 April 1929 as a memento of the emigrant’s impending departure for North America. The caption in German may read:

    We come and we go,
    It could not be otherwise,
    If we meet again,
    God alone knows.
    We have found that,
    It is what we know as love,
    This keeps us connected,
    If sea and land separates us!

    In memory of my trip on North German Lloyd. Bremen. 1929

    On the right side of the photo are Robert Fausak (1896-1980) standing behind his wife Olga nee Teise (1895-1989), and Albert Fausak (1901-1974) standing next to his recent bride Emma nee Jakobus (1904-1997). The three boys on the right are Robert and Olga’s sons (l. to r.) Edward Fausak (1919-1936), Alfred Leonard Fausak (1923-2-13), and Kurt Carl Fausak (1925-1998).

    The older man standing at the left rear, the young woman on the left, and the boy seated left on the floor are Leonhard Meyn at age 42, his 17 year old daughter Herta, and his 9 year old son Max.

    The tall man standing and the seated young woman holding the boy are Johann (John) Rewitz at age 26, his wife Maria (Mary) Rewitz at age 24, and their son Horst Rewitz at age 2.

    All of the families were traveling together, and all are believed to have lived nearby one another near Grenzhof and Candien, East Prussia. Leonhard Meyn, who apparently resided in Bruderheim AB Canada was the immigration sponsor for the two Fausak families and for the Rewitz family.
