“This is my heimat (home).”
Silent, observant, thoughtful, restrained, moderate. The Russian-German David Davidowitsch Gebel remained in Blumenfeld, while many of his compatriots went back to Germany after 1990.
For Davidowitsch it was worth it and today he is one of the biggest farmers in the region.
“This is my home,” he says.
He lives with his second wife Masha and her daughter Kristina who works in Omsk and comes back home every weekend. For her future in Blumenfeld he has built Kristina a modern German style house there.
