This collection of albums chronicles my experience as a chaperone during a three week tour of Bavaria as part of a student exchange between Warwick High School in Lititz, Pennsylvania and their partner school KKG in Altotting, Germany located in southeast Bavaria. Although, not a German language speaker, as a student of history and culture, I was able to see things first hand that previously I had only read about in books. My grandfather immigrated to America at the age of ten from the country of Austria-Hungry and arrived at Ellis Island aboard the steam ship S.S. Paris on November 19, 1921. It meant a lot to me to be able to see the area of his birth. My research to date shows his village within 300-400 miles south of Altotting in what today is known as Bosnia-Herzegovina. I thought about him a lot as I traveled around the area. He passed away when I was only a toddler and I never really got to know him but I feel I know him better now, seeing the origin of his roots. It was an amazing experience to be part of, one I will never forget...
