A country’s history, condensed in a person’s life

Berta Zeisler1 (2 February 1900 – 1 December 2010) was a German2 supercentenarian. She was born in Metz (German Empire, now France), married in Stettin (German Empire, now Poland) and lived in Wachenheim an der Weinstraße.

Additionally, a short biographic note can be found here (on page 11), an image of her here.
2: As with all things pertaining to Elsaß-Lothringen (pardon, Alsace-Lorraine), the French seemingly feel an urge of Francization or Gallicization also of Mrs Zeisler, as evidenced here. Our outre-Rhin neighbours‘ prowess in rewriting history never ceases to amaze me.
