If you happen to be interested, like I was, here is the link to Klaus' entire story. The picture of Klaus reveals that he was quite proud of his collection as well as his efforts of keeping the story of his parents and many others fleeing their homeland for safety.
A photo from Walter with a young Klaus... Sorquinces - Walter Hesselbarth was the manager of the Count's Sorquitten (Polish: Sorkwity). He had accepted the post on the condition "that I get a free hand", as he had explained to the then owner - Baron Bernhard von Paleske. “The estate had around 5000 hectares of usable agricultural area,” recalls Klaus Hesselbarth. The village of Sorquitten was founded in 1379. The estate was a former fiefdom of the Teutonic Order and changed hands several times over the centuries. Today's castle is located in the former Sensburg district on a headland between two lakes in a landscape park that is now a natural monument. In the course of time seven outworks belonged to the estate. In the Sorquitter Gutsforst with particularly dense pine and spruce stands, there was a good population of game. Sorquitten was famous for its deer hunts. After the war, the castle was used as a family vacation home for the “Ursus” tractor works under Polish sovereignty. Later it was a castle hotel that has since closed again. –
