In January 1996 I was invited, along with other veteran relief workers from the American Friends Service Committee and the Friends Relief Service, to the opening of the 'Stille Helfer' Exhibition of Quaker Relief Work, at the Berlin Historical Museum. I was also invited back to Berlin to make contact once more with the Berlin Ecumenical Council, and in the following year was guest of hour at the 50th anniversary celebrations of the 'Karolinger Youth House'. During conversations and discussions it became apparent that my German friends had little or kwledge of what the so-called 'victors' were going through in post-war Britain. This book is an abridged edition of Hugh Maw's post-war German Journal / Diary while serving, after training, in the Friends Relief Service (FRS) in Berlin and Cologne as an ambulance and truck driver, delivering International Red Cross food and relief supplies. His hobbies are gardening, photography, bird-watching and travel.
