In 1962, Käthe was arrested by the Gestapo on suspicion of having a Jewish grandmother. Her children were one generation removed from the genetic taint, and thus not in jeopardy under the race laws of the Reich. Her husband's commander, General Walter Dornberger, was able to pull strings by bribing, threatening, or otherwise saying the right words to the right people, and managed to get the ancestral charges dropped and Käthe released.
