A mysterious picture from the family archives. Of only one of the ten individuals the identity is known. At the back in German handwriting the words ‘Neuenahr, Summer 1924’. Second from the left is my grandfather Adolf Löwenhardt, obviously much younger than the bald heads. No doubt about it. The meeting took place in spa town Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler, south of Bonn in Rhineland-Paltz.
What made fourty year old Adolf travel from Dortmund to Bad Neuenahr, unaccompanied by his wife Julia? Who were the five bald headed men who, mysteriously, did not differ in age very much? And the seated couple with, presumably, their daughter and son… who were they? I cannot recognize one face. Do you have any idea?
