Sample text

All this—she had placed fifteen newspaper clippings in front of Blum, she said— failed to console her: Katharina had merely asked: "Who reads those anyway? " 28 In order to clarify how Gotten came to be at the Woltersheim dance, the first to be questioned was Else Woltersheim herself, and from the outset it became clear that, in her attitude toward the entire body of men by whom she was being questioned, Miss Woltersheim was, if not downright hostile, certainly more hostile than Blum. She stated that she had been born in 1930, was thus forty-four, unmarried, occupation housekeeper-cateress.

Every attempt to discuss clothes, movies, dancing, which she, Renate Ziindach, tried to initiate in order to take Blum's mind off her problems, had been repulsed by Katharina. Then, Ziindach reported, in order to help Blum, who seemed positively hypnotized by the News, she had asked her colleague Hüften to relieve her for a few minutes and had gone off to the archives, returning with clippings from other newspapers in which Blum's involvement and interrogation, and her potential role, had been reported quite matter-of-factly.

For her the difference was of crucial significance, and one of the reasons why she had separated from her husband was that he had never been amorous but had consistently made advances. Similar arguments ensued over the word "gracious," as applied to the Blornas. The record contained the words "nice to me," Blum insisted on the word "gracious," and when the word "kind" was suggested instead, "gracious" being considered somewhat oldfashioned, she became indignant and declared that "niceness" and "kindness" had nothing to do with "graciousness," and it was with graciousness that she felt the Blornas had always treated her.
