Franz Böringer was also a tennis enthusiast.


About 2006: In the vineyard in Winningen, above the river Mosel.

1989, Gallic humor of French Gendarmerie:
It's FRANZ and not HERMANN -
go and ask Dr. Müller: "MUSKATNUSS!"
(= nutmeg; cf.:
Louis de Funès,
'Le Grand Restaurant').


1966, checkpoint Lauterbourg/France:
"Bonjour -
we are back!"
My mother Marlene Böringer after an unsuccessful attempt to invade France. Anyway: Her Volkswagen Beetle damaged at least a French barrier.
(She had been allegedly distracted by a handsome French customs officer...!)

30th of July 2014:
What a disgusting hypocrisy, what an inhuman act by Annette Böringer and Bernhard Böringer against their own mother! Marlene Böringer had to learn from a death notice in the newspaper that her husband Franz Böringer - whom she knew since 1956 and with whom she was married since 1958 - had died and had already been buried!


31th of July 2014, Hagenbach/Palatinate, nearly 300 km away from his widow's home, the grave of my father Franz Böringer.
Neither my mother, nor I could say: "Goodbye!"

Annette Böringer - a Federal Public Prosecutor ('Bundesanwältin') - and Bernhard Böringer had no kind of sympathy and respect for their own mother!

I owe it to my father to make it absolutely clear: There is no document, no written 'funeral instruction'! This way of burial was definitely not the will of my father Franz Böringer! Furthermore: This funeral was against the law. The local authorities would have been obliged to ask first of all his wife Marlene Böringer. It's incredible!

Never forget this quote by Winston Churchill:
"The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it; ignorance may deride it. But in the end - there it is..."
(Jesse Ventura: American Conspiracies, New York 2010, p. 142)
