On the occasion of the publication of the second book (Mein Zweites Leben), Christiane together with the publishing house ran a small blog to promote the book itself. In one of her posts, Christiane talks about a letter she received from her maternal relatives who lived near Gladenbach and in which a summer camp in Rachelshausen is mentioned. Later in the book (Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo) she will also mention a querry that belonged to her grandfather, a querry that is located in Rachelshausen.
