Rudy wasn’t surprised that the attic was empty after many years and different tenants. All the furniture and personal effects had been removed. Rudy knew that when his father built the house back in the 1920s he’d hidden something in there Rudy just wished. He knew where to look. That’s when he spotted the string and felt the excitement course through his body.
Bon – and here is man finds father’s secret attic room string in the wall leads him to call the police. Rudi Ladner was still a child when his whole family was forced to flee Czechoslovakia. When world war ii ended in 1945, all citizens of German descent were forced to go back to Germany. The Schlatter family home even got, seized and became the property of the government. However, even now 70 years later, Rudi still remembered the secret.
His father had told him so long ago. Rudi was already in his 80s and had his own family he’d started a new life. After his parents had moved back to Germany, it hadn’t been easy. However, his father had to leave his friends his job, his home, and his entire life when they moved to Germany all for the sake of his family’s safety. However, there was more that he left behind.
There was a family secret hidden behind the walls of the house. His father had built Rudi knew he had to go back and try to find it. Rudi had finally saved enough money to go back to his home country. He’d worked hard to provide for his family and it saved some money for himself so that he could make the trip he’d been running away from the painful memories of the past for a long time. But now he knew he had to return.
Time was starting to run out his life had flown by in the blink of an eye, even so Rudi knew that he still had a few years left. So after discussing it with his family and his children, Rudi decided to go back to the Czech Republic. He knew that this was probably his last trip, but he had to take it. His family, however, refused to let him make the journey by himself. The Schlatter family reached Rudy’s old hometown and looked around in amazement for Rudi.
The memories flooded back some good, some bad. They are stood the school he attended as a child over there was the library where he’d spent many a happy hour as a boy. All these things have been taken from him as a child, and they were all still there as if nothing had changed. It was a strange feeling like walking into a dream. Finally, they stood in front of the old house.
None of them knew if they were ready to uncover the secrets that had held the house was exactly as Rudi remembered sitting in the middle of a huge green lawn stone steps, awnings and all nothing had changed. The pattern of the molded cement on the walls was the same. It felt like a dream, but it was real. The only thing that had changed was the fact that the house had been turned into a care facility for the elderly. This meant that before they could go inside, they needed to get permission from the facility caretaker Rudy climbed the stairs to the Attic his family trailing along behind him.
He felt sad when he saw that all the furniture that had been left behind was gone. Nothing remained. He stood there for a while, taking it all in, and then he continued to search he tapped on walls and examined the wooden panels of the sloping roof. Then he saw something that made his heart skip. A beat Rudy hoped that things hadn’t been destroyed when the inside of the house was renovated.
He remembered his father talking about a loose board that marked the site of the secret hiding place, but Rudy didn’t know exactly where it was then, while looking for an any sign of a loose board, Rudy saw something that made his heart beat faster from one of The boards on the wall on the short piece of string Rudy knew that he would have completely overlooked it if he hadn’t known what to look for. He grabbed the string and pulled it, causing the board to fall away. There revealed, after all these years was the secret hiding place. His father had built in the eaves of the house. Rudy looked inside and couldn’t stop himself from crying inside the compartment neatly stacked were lots of boxes and wrap packages.
His father’s treasure was still there. After all these years, his family immediately started to remove the items from the secret compartment as eager as he was to start unpacking. Everything Rudy knew that first, he had to let the authorities know. Experts from the museum in ystein, odd, labelled a nearby town arrived and started to help with the unpacking the boxes they also started to date and categorize, the artifacts that Rudy and his family had uncovered. It was an amazing collection of memorabilia from World War.
Two some items weren’t worth much, but some of them were priceless. We were surprised that so many ordinary things were hidden. There Thomas occur uh one of the museum employees said thanks to the circumstances. These objects have a very high historical value. These everyday items gave a wonderful piece into life.
In the 1940s there were things like old sewing boxes. Some things were absolutely priceless. Rudy looked at each item, knowing how precious these memories would be. He also knew that every item had a story to tell among the items were some of the toys he and his siblings had played with his children. This was a bittersweet reminder of the life they’d had to leave behind the museum manager was astounded by this find of such a rare and historical find.
Then, among the items they found some strange and mysterious little metal objects. They speculated that these little objects were probably part of some machine that belonged to Rudy’s father. Unfortunately, the factory that manufactured them no longer existed. They found a scale that was in perfect condition and had no rust on it. They were amazed by the amazing condition of the scale, but then they found the paintings Rudy remembered and loved the paintings.
As a boy, there were so many different things that they uncovered, but all Rudy really wanted to keep were the paintings and his sisters dolls. The problem was that technically the find belong to the Czech government. As a result, Rudy would not be allowed to keep anything that they’d found as sad as he was that he wouldn’t be able to keep those special items. Rudy was happy. He reported the find, as is required by law, and he got to see the treasures that his father had hidden one last time the closure he received from uncovering this treasure trove was worth it to Rudy.
The items recovered from the unexpected time. Capsule would all go to the museum. Other people would be able to see these amazing relics and even learn about life in the 1940s Rudy’s father had even packed away things like puzzles socks and baby clothes. This all helped to create a clearer picture of what life was like back. Then.
Why was this fine, so important to the historians? However Maslov? How fact the museum manager said such a complete finding of objects hidden by German citizens after the war is very rare in this region? It’S reasonable to assume that Rudy’s father thought they would return to the house much sooner than they had Rudy’s, not upset by the fact that his family’s treasures were seized by the museum. In fact, he even promised to help the historians identify each and every item you.
