Gunter Nitsch grew up in that peculiar part of Europe now called Kaliningrad, a Russian exclave sandwiched between Poland and Lithuania. When Gunter was born in 1937, it was known as Königsberg, East Prussia, and Gunter’s father was a member of the Nazi Party. The end of the war meant Gunter and his family were now under Soviet occupation, clinging to a bare existence. Gunter will share his harrowing story of survival and escape to the West. You can read Gunter’s story in his memoir, “Weeds Like Us.”
