Wanda Welke

Wanda Welke was the daughter of Karl Welke and Euphrosine Gurke. At the age of twelve, orphaned, she immigrated from the war-torn boarder lands of Poland and Russia to the United States in 1920 along with her siblings. The surviving Welke family made their home in Portland Oregon. Their story is one of sorrow, devastation, and hope.
