War memories after city twinning (UK & Germany)





A twinning project between Aberdeen and a German town has united wartime memories in a book.
Older writers from Aberdeen and Regensburg combined to launch the book recording their experiences of World War II.

Representatives from both countries launched Connections - Verbindungen at the Gordon Highlanders Museum in Aberdeen on Tuesday.

The memoirs are written in both German and English.

The project began after English tutor Frank Cefali from Regensburg suggested to his class of senior citizens in May 2005 that they write about their wartime memories.
