This chapter details the letters exchanged between January and June of 1946. These chronicle the family’s difficulties and separation from Werner in the aftermath of the war, as the family struggles to begin anew despite the continuing difficulties of unreliable communications and transport systems, as well as securing provisions. Eventually, however, in mid-January, the situation is resolved: the French release the Hechingen institute, with its inventory, for transport; a house in Göttingen is ready to receive the family; and a renter for the Urfeld house is found. Now, finally, the family can move to Göttingen and start a new life together.
