The Blunks, a poor German family with many children, lived in Gdansk/Danzig. On 31st August, 1939, behind their house, they experienced the beginning of the Second World War. The eldest son Paul, eager to escape his alcoholic, brutal father, voluntarily joined the SS.After Poland was occupied by Germans, the Blunks had to move to Poland, where they received their own estate. The family lived "in paradise" until the end of the war, when the terrible deportation and murder of the former Polish landowners and the Polish intelligentsia began. In 1945, the family had to leave their farm in Adamowo. They tried to flee in the winter with nine children and two horse-drawn carts from Poland as far as Lübeck in northern West Germany. Hedwig, born in 1927, describes her experiences before, during and after the war, as told to her daughter Marion.In 2014 Marion travelled to Poland trying to find memories of her ancestors.
