How is he doing today? How is he dealing with the pandemic? Can the current situation with curfews and closed stores for him be compared to World War II?

I got to know Peter Liehr in Belarus. There we took part in a round trip of the so called "Volksbund" together: This trip is supposed to enable descendants of German soldiers to find the grave of their deceased father, uncle or brother.

I was also looking for someone there: My great uncle Hans, who has been missing since the 2nd World War.

To the movie "Searching for Hans".
