Born to an American soldier father and a German mother, Charles Bukowski started life at this location as Heinrich Karl Bukowski on August 16, 1920. Although his family left for America in 1923, Adernach still features the home with a plaque marking the site. There is a group trying to rent out the first floor of the home to make a Bukowski museum. The photo is Bukowski revisiting his birthplace.
