Dieter thomas 90: never lost his sense of humor

Dieter thomas has faced many challenges in his life, but has retained his sense of humor to this day. These days he celebrated his 90th birthday with his extended family. Birthday and told about his life.

He was born as a twin in aschersleben, where he grew up and later worked as a teacher. "I was an elementary school teacher and taught physics and chemistry in the upper grades.", HE narrationed. While microscoping one day, he looked out of the window "when a young girl in a fur coat ran by". That was margit, his future wife, whom he met at a dance class and to whom he will be married for 70 years this year.

Not from max hundt

"I actually wanted to become a doctor, but after the war the returnees came, so I didn't get the chance", he paid. He was too strict as a teacher, he said with a wink – dieter thomas is someone who doesn't take himself too seriously.

"I come from the east, where they drank a lot of vodka", that's why he still looks so good today. Of course, he had also done sports, had gone racing with the folding boat.

In the 1950s, the thomas couple set out for kulmbach to visit their relatives. The uncle of margit thomas was none other than school board member max hundt. "I had been able to stay in west germany, but I really wanted to go back to the GDR, study theology, learn latin, greek and hebrew," he said, he told the jubilarian.

For 20 years he worked in magdeburg as a protestant pastor, experienced the highs and lows of life in the GDR. "After the border was opened, I had the stasi files sent to me – 250 pages of them!"

He finally moved to kulmbach in 1994, when he retired. He moved with his wife margit to the senior citizens' residential park at schwedensteg, and until recently held a devotion for the residents every wednesday, which meant a lot to him.

"I love community, I also like to tell jokes", he said "i am allergic to humorless people."

He passed on this humor to his two children, five grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren, as well as the virtue of always being honest. He feels at home in kulmbach, but there's one thing he misses about his former home, the GDR: "the social aspects had to be copied from the GDR."
