I was surprised to learn Christabel came from a fairly privileged background and rubbed elbows with some important Germans. I had the idea she was just an everyday Berlin hausfrau but she seems to have managed to get away from Berlin quite a bit. Interesting, though.

Would have been nice to see photos of the period.

Really interesting insight into this time and place. Some part of general family history not so interesting for me.
