Is Garbiele Winkler the same person as Gabriele Winkler-Dechend?

Post by Simon Recherchen » 04 Jan 2021 20:02

Hi all,

I'm wondering if Gabriele Winkler from Himmlers personal staff is the same woman as Gabriel Winkler-Dechend?

The latter was in the haze around Karl Maria Wiligut, which means that she also had close ties to the circle around Himmler and the Wewelsburg.

But unfortunately there are just very few information about both I found online.

Would be happy to get a clue and more details.

Many thanks in advance!

Best, Simon

Apparently "Dechend" is the maiden name of Gabriele Winckler - so she is the same person.

It was confusing to me, although there is not much to find on the net about her there are different spellings of her name:

Gabriele Winkler
Gabriele Winkler-Dechend
Gabriele Winckler
Gabriele Winckler-Dechend

It is quite unusual for the maiden name to be attached to the married name with a hyphen...

Nonetheless sorry for errors and mess in spelling above in initial post.
