  • Bricks Link Newtown Resident’s Past And Present

    Oscar Berendsohn has inserted a piece of family history into his life. On Tuesday, October 22, masons at his Appleblossom Lane home chinked out three bricks near his front door and replaced them with three glazed “clinker” bricks, remnants of his childhood home outside of Hamburg, Germany.

    It was in the grand, custom designed brick house overlooking a branch of the Elbe River that Mr Berendsohn recalls a happy childhood, “until the Nazis came along, in 1933,” he said.
