Students following Flat Stanley to Stalag Luft III

We have a variety of interest groups following this blog, including K-8 students at Trinity Lutheran School in former POW Ed Bender's hometown. Flat Stanley has been enjoying accompanying Ed's two daughters, Mrs. Maurer (principal of Trinity) and Mrs. Larson (tutor at Knoxville CC).

Flat Stanley has been enjoying site-seeing in Berlin, taking in the Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag (German Parliament building), and Checkpoint Charlie (crossing point at the site of the Berlin Wall that used to separate East and West Germany during the Cold War). He is bored with shopping, though! :o)

While visiting Checkpoint Charlie, Flat Stanley got very disturbed because the Germans appeared to be misspelling Mrs. Maurer's name (he didn't understand that there is a German word "Mauer" that means "wall").
