On 12/12/1912 Abraham Alfons Lanzkron sent his 9 year old son Lazarus a postcard.
One hundred years later, Lazarus’s son Abraham (AKA Romy) Lanzkron emailed the scanned postcard (or postkarte it you prefer) to his son (that’s me).
In a hundred years my children will be over a century old and my grandchildren will probably be grandparents (if the next mass extinction event doesn’t get them first) so I’m depending on you – my future great-grandchild – to do the correct thing on 12/12/2112.
I don’t know what the preferred method of communication will be in the 22nd century but I’m pretty sure it won’t be Facebook (look it up if you don’t know what Facebook is). Hopefully the internet will survive in some way or form and this message will reach its mark.
Good luck from 2012, your ancestor.
For those of us who don’t speak German here’s a translation, thanks Oskar.
A postal –curiosity
Oh people look at this card
And read on this place
The 12- 12 has arrived today
One could call it a Postal – Curiosity
Because a 100 years is a long time
And no one will live so long
But take this card with you
Because it will be desired by all
Full disclosure: This post pre-dated a couple of days to appear to have been posted on 12/12/12.
