Gisela’s parents talk about her childhood
We have three daughters: Gisela, Renate, and Uta. Gisela was born on February 9, 1922, Renate on August 17, 1924, and Uta on October 9, 1926. Gisela is therefore the oldest of our three children.
We had no difficulties whatever raising our children, not even with Gisela. She was very compliant, but also rather introverted and very sensitive. As a child, she suffered only minor childhood illnesses.
