Biography contributed by Faithe Jones

Some "Good Germans"
Matron M. M. Eddy, of Keswick Military Hospital, who served in France and Egypt for more than three years of the last war : 'After reading about the atrocities in the papers in the past few days it is difficult to be calm about it all, but I think we have to be calm. "The individuals responsible must be punished. Don't just shoot them; shooting is too quick and painless. "For the civilian population the main problem will be education, and I believe it will be possible to find among the Germans themselves the right people to undertake this tack. "It's difficult to think of 'good Germans' just at present, but we mustn't forget the musicians and scientists of the past who prove that some of them really are 'good Germans'."
