Grüntzig and Heinz Mehlhorn (Spektrum Akademischer, 2010), p. 254: "Der Geburtsschein Hedwig Freibergs scheint verloren gegangen zu sein, erhalten geblieben ist ein Auszug des Taufregisters der evangelischen Kirche Sophien in Berlin Jahrgang 1872, Seite 95 Nr. 754, wonach sie am 24. Juli 1872 abends elf Uhr geboren wurde (Abb. 5.25)."
