Aged 68 in 2022 and retired on social benefits after leaving university without final exam it was piled up  in catalog at German National Library  legal deposits and here in Humanities Commons as open access science secured with doi-numbers (but not in catalog of local library of Neuss, where I’m  living since 50 years)

– 50 or so research works and books, mainly relating   to history, military, musicology, ethnology

– 167 or so written music – compositions arrangements, editions with sheetmusic and audios – partly with scientific prefaces – using as main language ENGLISH – because of the fate of my mother during NAZI-times.

Traces of these publications are in “WorldCat” as well.

Such we may conclude, that indeed there is in Germany NO “discrimination”- especially NOT from social status (unskilled-worker self-financed student)  nor political or religious reasons ( I somehow became “eastchristian-orthodox” with Greek, Russian, Serbian affiliations) nor from rassist causes (mother in forced labor  in NAZI-KZ).

Well, don’t forget: TO LAUGH AT LIFE  …

Tell you what – as some sort of “conclusion from MY life”: The old hermits, from which are taken my Christian names, were FAR MORE intelligent than MOST of other storytellers and chitchat-folks!

But very certainly, there ARE “certain reasons” to NORMALLY leave the country – say for Russian or Austrian mountains …


Was enrolled in quite a number of topics, mainly in “teachers training, German language and literature, Music, secondary education to 10th class”, and for master-studies in history –  but NOT ANY UNIVERSITY DEGREE accomplished

Did in meantime – 2013-2015 –  some coursera MOOC-courses around the globe – Tokyo, Singapore, Princton, Zurich, Edingburgh, Wellsesley- and made research contact to NPTEL MOOC, Madras / Chennai, India.

In 2022, June – August, used the 9-Euro-train-ticket to visit LOTS of historical places in Germany, I’ve never seen before!

Supported Gnessinka Music School, Moskwa, Hongkong Philharmonic Youth Program, Conservatory of Opava (operated by Order of German Knights OT) , Tchechia – and selected few choirs.

– Main Christian denominations, both Roman Catholic  and (Russian, Serbian, Greek) Orthodox

– I may add:  In 2019, aged 66, I kindly was informed, that my mother was in NAZI imprisonment including 2 KZs from 1939 to 1945 – and afterwards possibly fell victim to SOVIET troops, which PROBABLY brought her to Rawaruskaja, from where she SOMEHOW made her “way back” to WEST-Germany via POLAND. So please, do withstand the urge, to tell me, to try “liking”  NAZIS nor Stalinist Soviet-Communists!
