Gisela VON RICHTHOFEN, Aristocrat, Farmer: 1909-2005
Born into German nobility, she grew up within a stone's throw of the Kaiser, experienced life under the Nazis and then emigrated to Canada where she became a three-time Ontario dressage champion
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail Thursday, June 2, 2005, Page S9
Baroness Gisela VON RICHTHOFEN was born into the German aristocracy, but spent more than half her life in Canada, much of it on a farm outside Toronto. The freedom of the rural life in Canada was in sharp contrast to the world into which she born.
She lived for all but 8½ years of the 20th century. Just her name, VON RICHTHOFEN, provides a hint of her life. Manfred VON RICHTHOFEN, known as the Red Baron, was the top fighter pilot of the First World War. But when the famous VON RICHTHOFEN was killed in April of 1918, Gisela was just 8 years old and knew as much about the Red Baron as any other German child. He was a cousin of her future husband.
She was born Countess Gisela VON EINSIEDEL, one notch up from a baroness on the nobility scale. She was the first great-grandchild of Prince Otto VON BISMARCK, the Iron Chancellor who forged the German Empire in the mid 19th century.
The wars of the 20th century shaped her life. Her father survived the First World War; other members of her family did not. One brother was killed in France in 1940. Another brother, a fighter pilot, was shot down three times, the last time over Stalingrad in 1942. He was taken prisoner by the Russians and did not return to Germany until 1951.
As the wife of a diplomat she was a witness to the intrigue of the Second World War. Her first husband was posted to Warsaw before the start of the war and then to Paris during the German occupation. One of her close Friends -- and godfather to her son Manfred -- was Adam VON TROTT, the diplomat executed for his part in the failed plot to kill Adolf Hitler in 1944.
Gisela grew up on an estate in Saxony near Berlin. One of her neighbours was the German empress. When she was about 8 years old, one of Gisela's Friends dared her to climb the wall to the estate next door. Her pluck impressed the empress and she was invited to tea.
At the start of the First World War she saw her father off with his cavalry regiment, though she was more interested in the horses. "I was 5 years old and I went with my mother to the barracks and saw him go off to war," she wrote years later. "The horses being loaded on the train was what fascinated me. I was too young to have a perspective of what the war meant."
She spent the war on an agricultural estate near Heidelberg. After the war, her father worked as an estate manager and then for an agricultural-equipment firm. During the 1920's, Germany was ravaged by a post-war economic collapse and her family lost much of their land. Instead, Gisela went to university and, at 22, was the youngest woman to graduate from the University of Berlin law school. She didn't practise long since the Nazis came to power in 1933 and they didn't approve of women in professions. In 1936, she married a diplomat, Oswalt VON NOSTITZ, and had the first of six children. After the fall of France in 1940, she moved with him to Paris but during that time the marriage collapsed. She soon wed Baron Wolfgang VON RICHTHOFEN, an officer in General GUDERIAN's tank regiment who, before the war, had owned an art gallery in Berlin.
By the time the final months of the Second World came around, Gisela and her three children were staying on the Bismarck estate of Varzin in Pomerania and feared the approach of the Soviet army. Her husband Wolfgang, with the help of her ex-husband, managed to get a car with Japanese diplomatic licence plates (there were almost no civilian cars on the road) and mounted a rescue mission. The baron slipped away from his post for several days (an act punishable by firing squad), and used formaldehyde to fuel the car, since gasoline was impossible to find.
"My stepfather was Absent Without Leave and he had to use the back roads to avoid Gestapo checkpoints," recalls Manfred VON NOSTITZ, who went on to a career in the Canadian diplomatic service as high commissioner to Malaysia and ambassador to Pakistan and Thailand. "In Berlin we experienced some of the heaviest bombing. My mother was always very cool under pressure. At one stage she moved us from one shelter just before it was destroyed by bombs."
Life in Germany after the war was harsh. The VON RICHTHOFEN family was homeless, being from what would soon be called East Germany. For a while, they lived in rooms in a small castle in Ramholz with a friend from Baron VON RICHTHOFEN's regiment. At school, the children were harassed.
"I remember my mother once saw a chicken roaming free, grabbed it, killed it and cooked it for us. For the most part, we survived on cabbage, which I still can't stand," said Mr. VON NOSTITZ.
The VON RICHTHOFENs decided to emigrate. "My parents didn't feel at home in western Germany. They said they saw former Nazis in positions of authority, people like lawyers and doctors, and didn't want us growing up with them," said Carmen VON RICHTHOFEN.
In 1951, the family bought an 80 hectare farm near Campbellville outside Toronto and arrived with little money. Mrs. VON RICHTHOFEN, as she was almost always called in Canada, set out to make her new life a success. Later, her husband concentrated on training race horses, but at first they ran a mixed farm with everything from dairy cattle to field crops and chickens. She took night courses at the Ontario Agricultural College in nearby Guelph. Along the way, Micaela, the last of her children, was born.
Her mother, Bismarck's grand-daughter, also lived in the house. Mrs. VON RICHTHOFEN cooked for 10 people and sewed clothes for her children and for herself. Yet, for all that, her years on the farm were among her happiest. For one thing, it meant a renewal of her love for horses. In the early days on the farm, she jogged trotters up and down Guelph Line, then a dirt road with little traffic and at age 50 she taught herself dressage.
From 1964 to 67, she won three Ontario dressage championships. She continued riding until she was 84. On her 75th birthday, her daughters Carmen and Micaela worked for hours posing her on a horse in her dressage outfit. The idea was to mirror a photograph taken of her ancestor Otto VON BISMARCK on his 75th birthday.
Mrs. VON RICHTHOFEN and her husband left their farm in 1985 and moved to Toronto.
Gisela Sybille Frieda Else Marguerite VON EINSIEDEL was born in Creba, Saxony, Germany, on July 25, 1909. She died in Toronto on April 4, 2005. She leaves her children Christine, Veronika and Manfred VON NOSTITZ and Carmen, Nikolaus and Micaela VON RICHTHOFEN. Her husband died in 2000.
