You can´t translate the village´s name from Brückentin into "thin bridge" hence "thin= dünn". Brückentin is an urban district of the municipality Wokuhl-Dabelow.

Funny, that was exactly what I was thinking it looked like
and even then it would be hard to decipher...how they read that
is beyond me.

Looks like the Roller or Gabelsberger shorthand rather than the Pitman or Gregg systems used in the UK and USA respectively.

Could it be a form of Sütterlin script shorthand?

Doubt it, because in 1924 they introduced the German Unified Shorthand , revised in 1936.

if Hedwig didn't tell her children who their father was I think the reason may be quite simple and logical.
I don't think she acted this way for a kind of conformist outlook, because she had gone on dating himmler despite her parents' disapproval, so she was quite a strong woman.
but - we all know children of the major nationalsocialist leaders had hard times, or were even kept in concentration camps for several years after the end of the war, just because of their surname..! see the case of Himmler's daughter herself, Gudrun...
so Hedwig clearly wanted to protect her children from these risks

Dr Fahrenkamp, who was a good friend of Himmler, was a specialist of digitalis treatment. He made some experimental experiences on this topic. Not only on medical threatment but to increase the growing of plants and animals.

Was there a fifth child, or was Nanette Dorothea POTTHAST given up for adoption after the end of hostilities and taken to the USA by a member of the US armed forces? The following is difficult to evidence, but in the second half of 1985 I encountered, in South America, a woman of about the right age who claimed to be an illegitimate daughter of Himmler who had been rejected by her birth mother following public disclosure of Himmler's past. Later that year I met, in supposedly impeccable circumstances in North America, the man claiming to be her adoptive father - although he seemed a bit young to be the adoptive dad. If the story I was told in Antofagasta was both true and correctly recalled, there may be a second mistress - a surprisingly young lady from the ranks of both the BDM and the Lebensborn. Unless, that is, it was Nanette that I met. Can anyone here suggest a way of resolving the uncertainty?

This Dermatologist strongly attracts my attention. Is a pure hypothesis to be explored. His name is Nanette Dorothea Staeck.
