I’ve been involved professionally in virtual teams (tends to come with the territory when you work for a multinational corporate group…), but none have been as enjoyable as the one I’m working with now.
Which became “un-virtual” yesterday in the Awake café in Mainz.
Our paths crossed earlier in the year when we both stumbled across the Auckland Museum’s series on Egon Schönberger, the son of a wealthy German Jewish family from Mainz who emigrated to New Zealand in the late 1930s to escape the Shoah.
We’re currently working on a project helping an American journalist and biographer of a Hollywood personality to trace the family’s Mainz origins.
And making stunning progress (if we may say so ourselves…)
