Meeting Ralph Baer in Pirmasens June 2006

Meeting Ralph Baer in Pirmasens June 2006

Ralph Baer traveled to Germany in June 2006 to visit his home country and the town where he was born. It was the first time he had visited Germany since escaping from the Nazi regime shortly before World War II in 1938.

We (a group of collectors) had the opportunity to meet him in Pirmasens, close to Rodalben where he was born in 1922.

Ralph was accompanied by his son Markus, daughter in law, and both of his grandchildren.

Ralph also met with Mr. Roland Paul from the Institute of Voelkerkunde Kaiserslautern and talked with him about his family and relatives that once lived in Germany. He wanted to know their current whereabouts.

Later, Ralph gave us the opportunity to have several of our Odyssey systems and their owners manuals signed. This was a great moment for all of us! After that Ralph, was invited by the Mayor of Pirmasens along with the Press for an interview that took place in the town hall of Pirmasens. We filmed this interview and have placed it on DVD.

Ralph also gave us the chance to take some nice photos of him with our group as well as with his family.

Finally, Ralph left us heading for Cologne, the town where he lived from 1924-1938 and spent most of his childhood.

Thanks to Ralph for this wonderful day!!
