「They (Hannelore & Helmut Kohl) met when she was just 15 and he 18 in the tough years after the war. Kohl finally won her over with an avalanche of love letters, she said — more than 2,000 in all, Reuters news agency reported.
She stood by his side throughout a long political career, including both his time as chancellor from 1982 to 1998 and during a slush fund scandal after he was voted out of office.
“We survived World War II. We will also cope with this … I stand by my man," she said at the time. 」
