Dessau Museums

The boys, Marc, and my son Amedeo enjoyed the Technikmuseum. I did too. My dad was a Navy pilot in WWII (My Father’s History – Commander Theodore Hechler, Jr. (US Navy Retired) (

I wanted to see the Bauhaus (Wikipedia) but the timed entry dissuaded me.

The two statues are of Kurt Weill (Wikipedia) and Bertolt Brecht (Wikipedia). I associate them with the famous singer Lotte Lenya (Wikipedia). Play the Moon above Alabama for an example.


We stayed in Dessau (Wikipedia) for two nights with my family while visiting my daughter-in-law’s relatives. In the morning I wake early so we went to the park nearby. I love runs and had fun photographing the ruined buildings we found.

The last two are of my grandson Oscar and his niece at the caffe where we met most of Heike’s family.
