Greetings to all!

My name is Elena Frick and I am 61 years old. I live in Russia not far from Moscow (5 hours by train). I am German by nationality.

(This is me at the moment )

About Germans in Russia

Yes, there are Germans in Russia who settled here in the 18th century. My ancestors and parents lived in the Volga region.

During the second world war, they were all repressed. They were forcibly evicted to Siberia and then sent to a concentration camp. At the same time, they were forced to leave all their property in their former places of residence. They were stripped of everything. This is a very sad story.

You may have a question: why do I want to leave Russia so much?

In all my years in Communist Russia, I have never been happy. I don't remember a single happy period in my life. It is difficult for me to tell briefly why this happened and what this life was for me.

That would require writing a whole book. Perhaps if a person was born in the capital or another very large city, then everything would not look so terrible. But I was born in a Siberian village.

Already so many, but I have never been happy! Now is the time to start a new life.

I'm a retired librarian with a very small pension

I graduated from the University of Culture and worked as a librarian in the city library. I chose this profession to my liking. I wanted to encourage people to read good books. But the salary was so small that it was barely enough for a modest meal and the most necessary things.

In Russia, I have never had, for example, a washing machine or a dishwasher, and I will never have them again if I stay here. I didn't even dream of a car. And, of course, no entertainment, no joy.

Currently, my profession is not in demand in Russia at all, and what they do there is completely absurd. And then came even more difficult times.

I am currently retired. And I have, of course, a very small pension. It is about $130 a month.

With this money, I still have to pay for all utilities. My apartment in a house that was built in 1962 has been in need of renovation for a long time, but there is no money for it. These funds are not enough for anything at all. That's why I'm asking you for help.

I am eligible for the Late Immigrants Program, which will bring me back to Germany

At present, we are their descendants and have the right to move to Germany under the Late Immigrants program.

I made the same statement. And I have already passed the necessary language testing at the German Embassy. And I did it successfully. After that, I received consent from the German side to accept me in Germany.

I want to live in a beautiful city, with beautiful houses, with good roads and sidewalks. And have at least some joy in life. I would be accepted by Germany through The Late Immigrants Program, but I can't leave because it takes money.

Expenses details to move from Russia to Germany

What do I need money for to go to Germany? These are what my expenses for moving from Russia to Germany would look like.

1. Foreign passport. Its price is about $ 70.

2. Apostille of documents has become much more expensive. Now it will be about $ 100 for me.

3. Translation of all documents. It is difficult to say for sure. About $230.

4. Travel to Moscow to order a national visa. The amount is undetermined.

5. Plane tickets.

6. again, a trip to Moscow, a stop at a hotel for the night and sending to the airport.

7. Flight from Moscow to Hanover. Transfer to Friedland is about 300 euros.

8. Stay in the country for the first time.

Please, help me move to Germany to start a new life!

Of course, with my pension, I can't afford anything. I would be very happy if someone could help me.

I would have a chance to start a new life! I was very grateful to you! I can't do this without your help. Thank you in advance to all those who are not indifferent to my story!

I would be happy if you would use the [help with distribution] button to share my project!
