My Name is Brigitte and I am a Guide since 15 Years.
I always had a passion for history and especially World War two. Throughout the years i was honored to meet many veterans who told me a lot of stories that I will be happy to share with you. There are so few of them still alive now and it is very important for me to perpetuate their memory.
