Not necessarily. She was born in Hamburg, her father was a Lutheran Pastor who was transferred to a church in East Germany who was probably not allowed by the East Germans to return to Hamburg.

One of my dad's sisters went before the war to Leipzig for a job. She med and married her husband and they had had a son. My aunt had a daughter out of wedlock. Before the Iron Curtain came up they were allowed to visit relatives in West Germany. I remember my aunt visiting us with my cousin Barbara two or three times. The last times they did, both my cousin and I were 16 years old.

Then the East Germans under the order of Ulbricht built the Berlin Wall to keep the East Berliners and East Germans in.

My parents used to send care packages several times to them especially before Christmas so my aunt could bake cookies for Christmas. They also included Bananas and Oranges which they could not get in Leipzig
