Accumer Riege: 1. Part of district road No. 210 (K210), a rural lane in Northern East Frisia that runs parallel to the coastline and connects the township of Dornum towards Esens, through the small village Westeraccum (“Western Accum”) which gives the street its name; 2. colloquially: “The Accum bunch”.
For Heinrich Creutzenberg (4 Dec. 1912 – 4 Feb. 2012)
Note: I just uploaded this short documentary as a memorial to a place and its people. I shot it with a cheap Samsung digital camera more than five years ago, when my granny was still alive. Since then, it has served as a kind of souvenir in the truest sense of the word, something to remind me of my childhood when I used to spent whole summer breaks up there. Later, I did a (still uncut) remake with a camcorder, but this “grainy” imperfect recording remains an artifact from some by-gone (not necessarily more happy) summer days that I will always come back to. So long.
