Gisela Schertling to Freiburg
Every once in a while, I would get a letter from Sophie. If a letter contained political sentences, I just took it as something unusual and did not worry about it.
Once she wrote me that I should come to Munich the next semester, because her brother was there too. She did not know whether she would be able to go, because her mother was pretty ill and she had to help out at home.
But since I actually did not know how much it would really mean to her if I went (because she could be very reserved and one could hardly know whether she really liked you), I went to Freiburg. Several school friends from my days at Spetzgart wanted to study there.
I especially liked the Black Forest, where we could truly enjoy the summer together. I liked being there very much. I liked various lectures a lot. We went bicycling and hiking often. I got to know several nice [male] students. We went dancing several times.
