Frau Koch was a fourth-grade teacher in Berlin. Francesca Gimpel was in her class. Koch was known universally as The Beast, because of her strict teaching methods, quick use of the paddle, and general devotion to Nazism.
Koch spoke in support of Konrad Jahnke's article, Enough is Enough, a rebuttal to Führer Heinz Buckliger's call for reforms. However, she also followed the Nazi philosophy of the infallibility of the Führer, and so gave contradictory lessons in her class.
After the Gimpel children had been taken into custody on suspicion of being Jews, Koch made life particularly difficult for Francesca after her release. When the Committee for the Salvation of the Greater German Reich launched its Putsch in 2011, Koch was a vocal supporter, making her students learn the Committee's name and the name of Odilo Globocnik, the interim Führer. When the Putsch failed, Koch was replaced.
