Hermann,

klasse is created in the context "Global`" when the assignment

oo`new12[] := (Print["Name klasse - Begin"];
    Print["$Context: ", $Context];
    Print["$ContextPath: ", $ContextPath];
    ToExpression["klasse"];
    Print["Context of klasse: ", Context[klasse]];
    oo`resumeContext[];
    Print["Name klasse - End"];)

is converted into internal form (with contexted symbols) prior to
evaluation.

This is before
    oo`new11["Rechteck"];
is evaluated
