What is your Pomeranian Identity (Part 2)


In August 0f 2013 Anne Mareike Schönle the Historian at the Pommersches Landesmuseum in Greifswald asked our members the question -What is your Pomeranian Identity? Seven people from our face book page answered and their answers were sent back to Mareike. She has sent us a second request which I have posted below:

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen

I have already contacted you to get information about your Pomeranian
ancestors and to learn where descendants of Pomeranian settlers live today.
As I am preparing a media-project on the Pomeranians' culture (for our
new permanent exhibition) I am interested in photographs of your
ancestors and yourselves. I know that this is a great request to make of
you and a great responsibility. If you send me some photos, we will keep
and safe them in our archive, in case they are printed.
It would be a pleasure to hear from you.
Yours siuncerely
Mareike Schönle

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,

Ich kontaktierte sie bereits, um Informationen über Sie und Ihre
pommerschen Vorfahren zu erhalten. Da ich ein Medienprojekt über die
Kultur der Pommern vorbereite (für unsere neue Dauerausstellung),
interessiere ich mich für Fotografien von Ihren Vorfahren und Ihnen
selbst. Ich weiß, das ist eine große Bitte und Verantwortung. Wenn Sie
mir Fotos zusenden, werden wir sie in unserem Archiv aufbewahren, wenn
sie gedruckt werden.

Ich würde mich freuen, von ihnen zu hören!
Mit freundlichem Gruß
Mareike Schönle
