5junAll DayHartmut EsslingerBirthday


Event Details


Birthplace: Beuren, Germany

Hartmut Esslinger went to California in 1982, to design the first Apple computers. The Golden State was to become his new home. A couple of years ago, the Black Forest-born designer took on the American citizenship. By doing so, he followed his grandfather’s advice, who suggested his then eight-year-old grandson to learn English and to always keep ready a ticket to New York. The Nazis killed seven family members because of their Jewish heritage – Esslinger’s grandpa was scared throughout his life that they might return some day.
