Bredhoft or Bruns relatives from Germany? This photo was found in grand aunts possessions, we assume it is a good bye or voyage photo because of the cloth and twig in hands. Does anyone recognize outfits?

A photo of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Dietrich was a German pastor who was part of the German resistance and a conspiracy plot to get rid of Hitler and the Nazi regime. He was arrested for smuggling 7 Jews from Germany to Switzerland. When the July 20th plot to kill Hitler failed (in which he took part), he was sent to Buchenwald concentration camp in February 1945, then he was transported to Flossenburg concentration camp, then sadly executed by hanging on April 9, 1945. He said "the ultimate question for a responsible man to ask is not how he is to extricate himself heroically from the affair, but how the coming generation shall continue to live."

I've "rescued" an old photograph of Marguerite ROSENOW MITLER which was taken at the Ed Schultze Studio in Heidelberg, Germany. The photograph appears to have been taken in the early 1900's with Marguerite likely in her teens or 20's at the time it was taken. In addition to her name, she has written "To Florence with Marguerite's Love" and "Now Mrs. Earnest MITLER of NY" on the back of the photograph. Based on limited research I was able to locate the following information regarding Marguerite and her family: Marguerite ROSENOW was b. 5 Feb 1886 in Walla Walla, WA to parents Albert ROSENOW and Celia DUSENBERY. Marguerite married Herbert Ernest MITLER (b. 1885 in Peoria, IL to parents Sigmund O. MITLER and Ernestine STERNBERG) on 14 Oct 1911 in Manhattan, NY. and had a son, Ernest Albert MITLER (1916-2002). Census records provide the following details: 1900 census of Peoria, IL: Max ROSENOW, age 53, born Nov 1846, married 24 years, born Germany, parents born Germany, to USA 1889, a Cooperage Manufacturer Ulla ROSENOW, wife, age 43, born Mar 1855, married 24 years, 3 children/3 living, born Germany, parents born Germany, to USA 1889 Herbert ROSENOW, son, age 21, born Jul 1878, born Germany, to USA 1889, Clothier House Malvila E.

If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley

My Grandfather, Kenneth Seibert, sitting in front, served in the 581st AAA Automatic Weapons Battalion. He served in the European Theatre. He left 24 DEC 1944 and returned home 04 APR 1946. He did not list the location of this photo but I would assume it is near the Rhineland.

DIETZ CASTLE, Diez, Germany in the Lahn River Valley, a few hours from Frankfurt. (pronounced "Deets"). My paternal ancestors belonged to the House of Dietz-Nassau & we do have some notable figures as relatives." "House of Dietz-Nassau" I think may be a mistaken naming of the "HOUSE OF ORANGE-NASSAU" to which the Dietz's belong... I have not seen any references to "Dietz-Nassau" but I may be wrong!
