Heinrich Braun was born & raised in Hamburg, Germany. He and his family were Catholics, and since Germans could be Catholics, Braun and his family comfortably lived in Germany, which was a pull factor. He started getting discriminated daily for being Catholic, a push factor, once Otto von Bismark decided Catholics are not fully German, showing political and social issues.
Heinrich's life is so much more fulfilling in the United States. Once he arrived, he searched for a new home. After only five days of looking, he met some German Catholics that would let him stay in their farming home. He then got married 2 years later and is still hoping to raise kids into Catholicism. He hopes that they aren't criticized in their new town in America for their beliefs.
