do you have a death certificate or grave for Clara? would it be possible for a German spy to have a death faked in Germany when she had gone missing? especially if she was an important spy

Check out http://www.josefjakobs.info/2016/09/clara-bauerle-is-finally-laid-to-rest.html (or post #15 at the end of this current blog post). Anything can be faked, of course. The question would be to what purpose?
