He used to be a humble farmhand there at a time and proudly bought it now from his former master cash in hand. My parents were very happy there and worked and improved that farm diligently until 1920. My future had to be decided upon when I was 14-years-old. I harboured the dream of becoming a forest ranger, as I loved the land, rivers, forests and all animals wild and tame with great passion. My father’s idea was more down to earth and practical. Besides, in order to get into that field, one had to study. Studies were very expensive and our family too large for extravagancies. My father had a better idea, for me to become a toolmaker by trade. It would not cost anything and my teacher would be a relative uncle of mine who owned a toolmaking firm. His surname was Bartsch and he lived in Osche. So it was decided and done. Five times, I ran away from there. Five times, I was recaptured and brought back. In the end, I sat for my exam in Schwetz and passed it with excellent results.
