89/366: Thursday, 03/29/2012 -My father with his father: Berlin in the 30's.

This is one of very few pictures I have of my paternal grandfather: Carl-Heinz Grimm. the little boy in a sailor suit (not Hitler Youth!) is my father. I wonder if it was taken at the 1936 Olympics, My father would have been 5 at the time. I know very very little about his dad. I remember my dad insinuating that his dad was conservative, perhaps even pro-Hitler. I think he died young in the 50's and I have no clue what he did during the war.
