Protestant Church of Rhineland… response?

leave a comment »

The Protestant Church of Rhineland invokes the 5th Amendment:

“am liebsten würde ich schweigen…” (“I would prefer to remain silent …”)

-The words from Helga Schroeck-Vietor, today from the Protest Church in Rhineland when asked by author David Stroebel to conduct a search for old, archived diaries between out-going and in-coming priests/church officials for any instances of Alfred Krupp pressuring the church into removing/destroying his daughter’s church records.

Why have they chosen to remain silent?

Coincidences and a Clue

First revision October 23, 2013

When Engelbertha Krupp Stroebele died in 1911 she died at age fifty-seven, the same age her mother, Bertha Eichhoff Krupp when she died in 1888 in Germany. Engelbertha Krupp Stroebele died of a stroke just as her mother, Bertha Eichhoff Krupp had died.

Karl Stroebele, the only son of John and Engelbertha Stroebele to be born in America, was first baptized Frederick Stroebele at St. Boniface Catholic Church in Jersey City, New Jersey. Translated to German, Fredrick is, “Friedrich,” the name of Engelbertha’s brother, Friedrich Krupp. Did Engelbertha name her youngest child after her brother Friedrich, only to change his name to Karl Anton Engelbert Stroebele?

Was this Engelbertha’s doing, or was her husband, John, responsible for pressuring her into changing their son’s name? Why was their son’s name changed? Was this John’s attempt to hide Engelbertha’s past in Essen? Why go to such lengths to hide one’s past?
