Møn Stories : Episode 1 : Otto Nielsen
EPISODE 1: OTTO NIELSEN
Welcome to the latest endeavour of Møn Sessions: Møn Stories, where we tell original stories of the people living on Møn.
We open up with Otto Nielsen, the caretaker at Sukkerfabrikken, Stege. After the factory closed in 1989, he became its last employee, who is still working there, looking back on a long life connected to the factory.
“My name is Otto Nielsen. I’m 84 years old and have been working in the factory for 63 years. – And I’m still happy to be here. Sometimes my wife also asks me: “Why don’t you just stop working?” But saying goodbye to half of your life – it is not easy to do that.”
– Otto Nielsen
