How I met OStDir. Marie Therese Cabisius (31.8.1895 - 5.1.1989) !

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 Karlstraße was Oberstudiendirektorin Marie Therese Cabisius. As they both came very good along he took her with us to a journey through East-Germany, . This was at that time only possible, because he was the leader of the Goethe-Society in Bremen, the only connection with Weimar, 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 in physics at the University of Berlin. Because of the war there was no chance to come together. But he was still always precious for her!

...- And I was reminding her to Dr. Fritz Holborn. (I am very lucky and thankful because of this fact!)

M.Th.C. is unmarried and was only helping other people. But there is not a chance to help her. But in 1968 the winter was terrific cold. 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. The ways were very slippery.

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!

The children called her "Omimi"! 

Highest respect!

 Prof. Dr. rer. pol. Dipl.-Kfm. Wolfgang Blankenforth nee Cabisius
