The Gates Historical Society is pound to announce presentation by Marlies Adams Di Fante, author of “The Queen of Bremen”. In the spring of 1939, Marlies’ family received a letter from Germany stating that Opa, her grandfather, was terminally ill. The decision was made to leave New York and head overseas. Little did the family know that what was intended to be a three-month stay would turn into seven years of living hell.
