German Culture Alive - A SaskScapes feature series

This is the sixth in a series entitled "German Culture Alive”, a special "SaskScapes Podcast presents" feature sponsored by the Saskatchewan German Council. Visit the website to learn more about the non-profit organization, its mandate, and its outreach.

"He leaves behind an illustrated life" - Host Kevin Power is joined by Barbara Stehwien to talk about the legacy of Fritz Stehwien. Fritz (Barbara's father) was a German-Canadian artist who painted and sketched an estimated 10,000 works in his lifetime. Since his passing in 2008, at the age of nearly 94, it has become a labour of love for Barbara  to preserve these pieces, some of which have suffered deterioration  over the years.  This is a continuation of episode 102 featuring Waltraude Stehwien who was Fritz's wife. There is much to hear in that episode about their lives together and their path to Canada.
