National Service

After my basic training I volunteered for the mobile exhibition "Unsere Luftwaffe" that represents the air force in the German public. In that year the exhibition travelled through the southern part of Germany visiting many towns. To give an insight into the work of the modern air force a lot of equipment was displayed including several rocket defence systems and combat aircraft.
The scope of my duties included public relations and promotion. I independently lead group discussions with school classes and spoke in open forum discussions in front of audiences.

History of the 20th century

My interest in history is not simply knowing dates, but the backgrounds, the characters and the people. The question why something could happen and why the involved people acted in a particular way interests me. I still believe that we can learn from history


On holiday I like to be innovative and plan my own itinerary. This way allows me to be independent, to create my own experiences and to get in closer touch with the country and the locals.

Collecting scientific instruments

I'm collecting scientific instruments for all kinds of voltage and current measurements, especially from the beginning of this century.
