This teddy bear has always been called War Bear.
He was the teddy of Stefanie's aunt, who got him during the Second World War.
After their childhood he lived for many years with Stefanie's grandmother.
Since the first acquaintance with this special teddy bear, the author was sure since childhood that she would like to inherit War Bear one day.
After the death of her grandmother, she actually became the new owner. War Bear moved from Nidda in Upper Hesse to Cologne.
There he now lives, still one-eyed, in a showcase with many children's book heroines and heroes.
