Childhood, Event, Memory
The first big event of my life was on the 26th of September 1911, at two
in the afternoon, when I first saw the light of the world. I was entered in the
civil register of the city of Luzern as Gustav Theophil Durrer, Luzern, son of
Dr. Gustav Durrer, senior; citizen of Dallenwil (Nidwalden) and Luzern. My
parents and sisters (aged 2 and 4) lived in the Lowen-Platz in Luzern.
