This photographic obituary is dedicated to Erna. The innkeeper of the Hamburgian Silbersack died on May 9th, 2012 at the age of 88.
63 years, Erna stood behind the same bar and the world came to her. Erna, the Grande Dame of St. Pauli in Hamburg.
Visiting the Silbersack, I had the feeling that Erna has kept her time for us.
