Wir stellen vor: Ms Bea Shamrock

My name's Bea Shamrock and I haven't lived in Berlin for very long but I like it very much.

I was born in Russia but then left for England, where I changed my name (Bea Sharapova to Shamrock) and became a teacher. In Berlin I work at the grocery store.

My father is still in Russia and he's a socialist, something I don't always feel comfortable with. I have one brother, Petr, who fought in WWI and was missing in action.He is in fact my reason for my coming to Berlin; I'd like to find him or at least find out what happened to him.

So far I've asked a policeman on the street about my brother, but (of course...)he didn't know anything. I admit it wasn't a very smart move, but I was desperate. I'm considering placing an ad in the local newspaper. Berlin is where his last letter came from.
