How I met OStDir. Marie Therese Cabisius (31.8.1895 -
Our class of
Abendgymnasium Bremen wanted to make a journey to East-Germany
in 1968 with our Deutsch-teacher Erich
Trittin. His headmaster in Schule
Oberstudiendirektorin Marie Therese
Cabisius. As they both came
very good along he took her with us to East-Germany. This was at that time only possible, because he was
the leader of the Goethe-Society in Bremen, the only connection with
DDR, beside Mozart-Society.
In Weimar my aunt Martha Langin nee Blankenforth from Halle, DDR, visited us
in Hotel "Hospitz". There M.Th.C. watched me and asked Mr. Trittin who I am. The
reason for this is that she was interested in Dr. Fritz
Holborn, assistent at
University of Berlin. Because of the war they did not come together.
he was still precious for her! And I was reminding her to Dr.
(I am very proud and lucky because of this fact!)
M.Th.C. is only helping other people. There is no chance help her. But in
1968 the winter was terrific cold. The ways were very slippery.
My classmate (Girlfriend) Ulla
(now my wife) and me then
got a chance to help her from the Wartburg in Eisenach down to the bus.
There she asked me what she could do for me. Immediatly I answered: Helping
me in mathematics (although I was not to bad just in this subject).
She became my great mentor and later the (adopting-)mother of our family!
called her "Omimi"!
