I lived in Hanau from 1972 until 1995. I still go home to visit my mother but it isn't the same anymore since the bases closed. All my friends are long gone, my school has been torn down among other things.
I was born in Munich but my heart is in Hanau and always will be. My daughter was born in the hospital downtown Hanau and went to german school in Ravolzhausen before we moved back to the states. It was a hard decision but as a single mother it was very hard working 6-7 days a week and raising her. My mother helped but it was still hard to pay the bills.
