Gisela Schertling character, teenage years

Regarding Gisela’s character, I [Paul Schertling, her father] have the following to say:

Gisela was particularly considerate towards her parents and siblings. We were only worried about her because she tended to get depressed. On summer vacations, we repeatedly had the pleasant experience that other hotel guests would spontaneously congratulate us on our children.

In the report card from the Girls Secondary School in Weimar, her [Gisela’s] good character and good congeniality were expressly emphasized. Gisela was especially known for not being able to lie.
