Description
"Mbozi. Arbeitsjungen auf der Station. Th. Tietzen" ("Mbozi. Workboys on the station. Th. Tietzen"). In the background large trees. In the foreground six African young men: two are seated on a bench wearing hats, three are standing behind them, one is crouching in front. One man wears a suit, the others shirts and shorts or a simple cloth around the hips. The man on the right holds a small basket with plants in his left hand.
Theodor Tietzen (1893-1973) was a missionary of the Herrnhuter Brüdergemeine. Having married Hildegard Marie Lenz in 1921 and served in South Africa (West) from 1922 to 1927, he moved to East Africa, where he served in Mbozi till 1929 and in Utengule till 1939.
