Her son was born in the same year. After reading excerpts from his speech "Wir verzweifeln nicht!" ("We do not despair!") she began working for Kurt Schumacher in 1945, whose closest confidante she became. After his death she actively entered politics. In 1953 she was elected to the Bundestag, to which she belonged for 37 years without interruption. She asserted herself in the men's world of Bonn and belonged to various committees.
