I'm writing about the death of a daughter of a relatively well-known historical figure, so I want to be as accurate as possible. Anyway, here's what happened: a woman living in Berlin, formerly a Soviet expatriate (her Soviet citizenship was revoked in 1932), commits suicide in early 1933, several weeks before the Nazis take power. Her father, also a former Soviet citizen, is living in Turkey. How would he be notified of her death? Would it be a telegram or a phone call? How much time would it take the German government to contact him?
Thanks so much in advance for your help - this situation is complicated and very specific, I know!
