Grandparents' Meeting

A Chance Encounter

"She was screaming for help..."

"They met by accident. Kurt and Alexander, my grandfather, were walking out of their store at lunchtime, and they saw a woman trapped between two electric cars, or electric streetcars, down the road from where they were working, and she was screaming for help. And Alexander raced across and was able to get her from between the cars, and that’s how they met.

They married in 1921, so I don’t know how much time passed from the time they actually met to the time they actually got married."
