Sankt Annenkirche- Elbing

This area of ManyRoads contains hundreds of images and photos of the city of Elbing, Westpreußen (now Elbląg, Poland) and its immediate environs.  Images include Elbing’s past, the war, as well as comparison photos of yesterday & today.

Elbing was the largest “nearby” town to the Senger family; it is where my mother Luise geboren Senger went to high school and college, while living weekdays with her Onkel Robert Senger and Tante Olga (geboren Döbel) in Elbing on 58 Wasserstraße (today: Wodna 58, Elbląg, Elblag, Polska) . In Elbing, she attended the Elbing Handelsschule. Robert & Olga Senger owned a small Gasthaus and store on the waterfront of the port of Elbing. Luise had a small room above the Gasthaus. The entire “Wasserstraße” area was destroyed during the war and has been ‘rebuilt’ in more recent years.

The Senger Farm and their Heimatland (homeland) was about 9km. from Elbing.  Our albums include place images and event related photographs of the city.

For more details, information, and writings regarding our Senger family, please visit the Senger genealogy page.
