Ah, that explains my difficulty.  My usual grammatical rule of thumb for
German is "imagine 18th-century English," which works fine most of the
time but breaks for the genitive case (on account of English not having
one -- the way we structure possessives is a remnant of the Saxon
genitive, but it does not represent an actual grammatical case).

Thanks.  :)
