Ruth Düsenberg moves in with the Scholl family

Kley Heilwig is an acquaintance of our family. She is from Hamburg, resides in Geislingen and is the wife of Albert Kley, a teacher.

Last summer, she approached my parents with the request to take in one of her (Kley) friends from Hamburg who was expecting a child. Once my parents agreed to this, Kley’s friend – named Ruth Düsenberg – came to Ulm in October 1942. Düsenberg is single and works as a nurse for infants.
