Katharina Schüddekopf’s early life
As stated, I was born in Magdeburg, daughter of the married couple Friedrich (corporate engineer) and Katharina Schüddekopf. I attended elementary school in Quedlenburg (sic) am Harz for 4 years. I continued my education at the upper girls’ high school [Note 1] in Erfurt until I took the Abitur in 1936. …
I have been afflicted with a diplegic hip joint dislocation since birth, and therefore am physically handicapped.
Note 1: Not a Gymnasium, but rather a Lyzeum (Oberlyzeum).
