Ljotruff...amazing life and story.
Thanks for sharing.

I suppose you had no inkling on her past when she was your Deutsch teacher.

These are kind of people we would like to meet.

"I suppose you had no inkling on her past when she was your Deutsch teacher" - Absolutely not Annelie, we just thought she was a nice old lady althogh one of the other German teachers told us that she left Germany because of trouble with the Nazis which turns out to be true either. The truth turned out to be something far more remarkable. Actually Frau McGregor (as we called her) was a German Language Assistant in the Royal High School, not a teacher as such but a native German speaker we went to once a week to help with colloquial language and accents we might encounter in Germany. Best 40 minutes of the week as far as I was concerned.

Are there any books about the topic Bereiterin? I've found about the book "Gerettetes Leben" written by Margot von Schade. Did anyone read it? Is it an informative book?
