Dialogue[]

House of Gerich[]

This section contains Klaas Gottschall dialogue present in "House of Gerich", from the Remember short story collection.

Excerpts[]

Altstadt has never seen much crime, but there was a dark period spanning from the early winter of 1702 until late summer of 1704. During these years no less than 39 men were arrested and locked up in castle Brennenburg’s dungeons. In most cases the criminal’s family would be banished from the land, effectively cutting the already dwindling population of Altstadt with 86 souls. The magistrate’s office has almost no records detailing these crimes, as most arrests were handled by an unknown nobleman named Wilhelm.


Conversations[]

With the Magister[]
Magister
“I don’t know what to tell you, Herr Gottschall...”
Klaas Gottschall
“Please, call me Klaas.”
Magister
“Herr Klaas, there doesn’t seem to be much there.”
Klaas Gottschall
“I’m aware.”
Klaas Gottschall
“Are you familiar with Heritage by Ludwig Kleist?”
Magister
“Does it matter?”
“Can I get you a drink?”
Klaas Gottschall
“Thank you – it’s just that Herr Kleist has done the most thorough investigation into the fate of the House of Gerich.”
Magister
“Who?”
Klaas Gottschall
“Wilhelm, the vigilant, was from the House of Gerich.”
Magister
“Ah, of course.”
Klaas Gottschall
“I want to pick up where he left off.”
Magister
“I see – where exactly would that be?”
Klaas Gottschall
“The book doesn’t really reveal what happened to Wilhelm. It only briefly touches on a few of the cases he worked on during his time in Altstadt. I want to try to find out what happened to him.”
Magister
“Fair enough – what can the magistrate’s office help you with?”
Klaas Gottschall
“Two things. I would like to know if there is anything which supports the claim that Wilhelm was working for the Baron of Brennenburg in order to quell the rise of crime. Wilhelm remained unknown by most and Kleist argues that he might have been working for the Baron to gain influence in higher circles.”
Magister
“Well, that I can tell you, by simply looking at the wall.”
“These are all the proclamations issued by the Brennenburg barony since...”
“... since 1599 and none of them mentions such a partnership.”
Klaas Gottschall
“Excuse me, but it doesn’t really prove that there was no deal, rather that the barony have been a quiet lot.”
Magister
“Not quiet – private. If there ever was such a deal, the magistrate´s office wouldn’t know. My point being, I can not help you.”
Klaas Gottschall
“That’s a shame.”
Magister
“You could ask for an audience with Baron Alexander.”
Klaas Gottschall
“I have, but haven’t heard back.”
Magister
“What was the other thing?”
Klaas Gottschall
“Excuse me?”
Magister
“Before, you said there were two things you wanted help with.”
Klaas Gottschall
“I need the documents concerning the fire.”
With Zimmermann[]
Zimmermann
“Hey there!”
Klaas Gottschall
“Herr Stoss?”
Zimmermann
“No, there is no Stoss around here. My name is Zimmermann.”
Klaas Gottschall
“I see, do you mind if I look around? I’m from Königsberg. I’m investigating the fire.”
Zimmermann
“Fire?”
Klaas Gottschall
“Yes, in 1704 there was a large fire here.”
Zimmermann
“1704? That’s almost seventy years ago!”
Klaas Gottschall
“Yes, I’m well aware.”
Zimmermann
“Of course, come.”
“What’s your name, Sheriff?”
Klaas Gottschall
“Klaas, but I’m not a sheriff, I’m a historian.”
Zimmermann
“Now, that sounds about right.”
With the Priest[]
Klaas Gottschall
“Father?”
Father
“Welcome, my son.”
Klaas Gottschall
“I need your help.”
Father
“God answers those who pray.”
Klaas Gottschall
“Well, yes, this is more worldly. I need insight into the church records. I need to know what happened to Dorothea Stoss.”
Father
“Happened to her? Whatever do you mean?”
Klaas Gottschall
“I need to know what happened to the farm after the fire.”
Father
“I’m not sure what you are talking about, but Dorothea lived with her daughter, Anna, for years here in Altstadt. She passed away. Must have been fifteen or twenty years ago.”
Klaas Gottschall
“Her daughter? Is she still alive?”
At the house of Anna Koch[]
Maid
“May I offer you something to drink? Are you hungry?”
Klaas Gottschall
“Thank you, but no thank you. I was hoping to see Anna Koch.”
Maid
“Of course, come, this way.”
Maid
“Anna?”
“This young man wanted see you. Would that be all right?”
Anna Koch
“Yes, of course. What can I do for you?”
Klaas Gottschall
“Frau Koch, my name is Klaas Gottschall. I’m from the university in Königsberg. May I ask you a few questions?”
Anna Koch
“Please, have a seat.”
Anna Koch
“I like watching the world go by.”
Klaas Gottschall
“I feel the same.”
Klaas Gottschall
“Do you remember the fire at the farm?”
Anna Koch
“Oh, dear, I haven’t thought about that for years! Why do you ask?”
Klaas Gottschall
“I’m trying to find out what happened to Wilhelm and the farmhand...”
Anna Koch
“Emil.”
“He was such a sweet man.”
Klaas Gottschall
“Really, I’m surprised you would say that.”
Anna Koch
“How so?”
Klaas Gottschall
“He killed your father.”
Anna Koch
“Don’t be ridiculous.”
Klaas Gottschall
“Whatever happened to Emil?”
Anna Koch
“Oh, I would say he was rebuked in some manner, but it was an accident and everyone knew so. I can’t imagine him being punished except by his own sense of guilt.”
At Castle Brennenburg[]
Driver
“Shall I wait, sir?”
Klaas Gottschall
“Please, I shan’t be long,”
