TLF: "My first picture in Siemensstadt was again an “ideal woman”... although ... the “Skipper’s Daughter” in Paris had been cosmopolitan; my Berlin one definitely represents Germany, my Germany. She is a sturdy Dienstmädchen as strong as an ox ... in the middle of spring-cleaning. No sooner had I settled at my new address in the Jungfernheideweg than the well-remembered Thursday morning concert came through the open back windows, of carpets being beaten by a horde of females..., on the day set aside for this by the Polizei – and I had only to look out, and there was... my heroine, such as I have portrayed her in La Garce. The French title imposed itself as a reminder, not to get sentimental over the lost paradise of childhood memories."
