Which is worse, the crime itself, or the way everyone walks on eggshells concerning who was responsible?
As we go into the story, and how everyone tiptoes around it, remember how it was FIRST reported:
A cruel murder shocked Brandenburg. Retiree Gerda K. († 82) was attacked in her apartment and tortured to death. Before we get into any excuses, or deflections, remember that we’re talking about an 82 year old. Someone who had SURVIVED as a child living under the Third Reich, and the hard-fought march of the Allies into Berlin.
She survived a Divided Germany, watched the Berlin Wall Go up … and come down again. She may, perhaps, have struggled under the Soviet rule in East Germany.
But she made it to the Brave New World of Angela Merkel’s Twenty-First utopian century. In which she was slaughtered.
