On January 1, 2001, the 21st century began. As discussed on page 9-85, this was one year later than public opinion indicated. This date closes the main narrative of this book detailing my experiences in the 20th century while living in Germany and the USA. Reaching the new century was a day of celebration for us. Against all odds Heidel and I had survived seventy years of this terrible century and achieved more success than anyone would have thought possible during our early years. As everyone, we are hoping for something better in the new century, although its beginning did not fulfill this expectation, as mentioned already on page 3-38.
