Attorney’s account of Gisela’s family
The accused is the oldest daughter of the publisher Paul Schertling from Pössneck. Mr. Schertling and his wife stand firmly on the foundation of National Socialist ideology. Both he and his wife have long been dedicated members of the Party.
Therefore the actions of their daughter affect these parents even more, as one can well imagine.
