New Pictures

Here are some pictures I received from my Gangnus contact in Germany. Thanks! And,ultimately, a BIG thanks to Petra Stockhausen who's the owner of these pictures. Remember, CLICK on the images to get a larger view of them!

This is Leontine Truschinsky.

This is Leontine Truschinsky -on left- and then her daughter, Gertrude just behind her. The gentleman in the picture is Leontine's husband, Erwin Gangnus.

Leontine, Gertrude and most likely Helmut Gangnus. If it is Helmut, it must be in 1942.

This picture is one that I got from my grandmother, Lydia (Till) Trusinsky. I posted it here because her husband, Alex (Sasha), is the brother to Leontine and the cause of my interest. While this is a picture of Lydia and her husband Alex, if you compare it with the other picture, don't Leontine and Alex look very alike??!! RIGHT click on this image to compare it with the previous image on a side-by-side basis.

This picture is of Leontine, Erwin and Gertrude (on the right side of the image). The remaining child is unknown and cannot be Helmut because there is around a 12 year difference in age between Gertrude and Helmut.

This final picture is of Leontine, Erwin and Helmut in the carriage.
