Alfred's testimonial

In 1984 Alfred describes in a letter very briefly the beginning of his career. During the first world war Alfred worked together with his father in Rückers Grafschaft Glatz, where his father was working with French prisoners of war coming from Alsace-Lorraine. He describes them as brave and decent people from whom he got always a piece of bread. The nights that he has spent his life in glass blowing are not countable. He was so focused on learning thoroughly the glass melt as well as the creation of many glasses types.
