In December 1945, Neas and her sister rode the horse that pulled a sleigh from Afers to Brixen. This is a distance of about 15 kilometers and a drop from 1500 meters above sea level to 500 meters above sea level. It was bitter cold and Peter's four year old brother, Klaus, was wrapped in a tight bundle to protect him from the icy night air. He was dying from dyptheria and by the time they reached Peter's mother in Brixen, he was dead. The war continued to take lives even after it was over.
