“I was born in Prag, Czechoslovakia in 1939, just before the war started. My parents were Germans, at that time many Germans had been living in Czechoslovakia for generations. When the war started my father had to join the army and he was killed in 1941 in Russia, my maiden name was Drössler. In 1945 all Germans had to leave Czechoslovakia (because Hitler had lost the war) and we were brought to Germany, my family to Bavaria.“

As an example of his artistic genius, I’d rate this at best a “C” plus, but not bad for the first time carving piece of linoleum. The hard part is to think in reverse: what you carve away becomes the white, and what’s left of the lino surface covered with ink and pressed to paper becomes the black.
