|Chancellor of Federal Republic of Germany from 1974 to 1982|
||"There were two places in my life,|
which had a very strong influence on my upbringing or education.
One was the city of Hamburg with all its advantages and all its limitations.
The other one was a village near Bremen, which is called Fischerhude, where many painters and artists worked.
Fischerhude was my intellectual home during the Nazi period."
