Born and raised in the western part of Berlin, Germany, Uwe Bratz is a Big City Boy.
He raised his first three kids with his first wife in a rural part of Germany. He later met his second wife, who is Ethiopian, in Ethiopia.
Uwe, who loves his work as a master carpenter, came to Canada in 2010, settling in Penticton in 2011. He is soon to become a Canadian citizen.
Growing up in Germany, but then living in both Ethiopia and Canada has sharpened his awareness of the perception – and misperception – people have of different cultures.
