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 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 at University of Berlin. Because of the war they did not come together. But he was still precious for her! And I was reminding her to Dr. Fritz Holborn. (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!

The children called her "Omimi"! 

High respect!

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