August 2, 2016; Ilse Weiszfeld was born in Vienna, Austria-Hungary (now Austria) on October 16, 1904. She currently lives in France and is the oldest living Austrian born person.

As a young girl, she was a brilliant student and a very sporty young girl who belonged to the HA-KOAH, a sports club for young Jews where she entered swimming competitions (and at times was a trainer) and also went hiking and skiing. Her family believe her long and healthy life was inspired by sporty, healthy youth.

She met her husband in 1927. She was an active musician and played the piano but she knew, being Jewish, there was no future for her as a concert pianist. So she turned to language studies (French and English) and this turned out to be a great help when, with her husband , they decided to leave Austria because of the economic and antisemitic situation and moved to France to start a new life in 1933.

There they started a small factory for ladies' underwear and were very successful for a few years. While her husband dealt with creating and selling new models, she oversaw the running of the workshop.

When the Anschluss broke out, they managed to get most of their family out of Austria in time and they all went into hiding in Lyon from 1940-41 until the end of WWII. They were helped by French friends who gave them their own IDs, at the risk of their own lives. Thus Ilse, who spoke French very well, was free to move around (unlike the rest of the family who hardly spoke the language) and worked hard to find food on the Black Market for the family. For example, her elderly parents hid away for a time in an psychiartric asylum and her small daughter hidden away in a small village in the Alps, a highly dangerous centre for the French Partisans.

After the war, Ilse went back to Paris, where they had to start from scratch, the factory having been totally vandalised and their apartment emptied and occupied by someone not entitled to it at all. Thus it took them some time to recover from the shock of the war and the lack of immediate prospects at the end of it. But Ilse was a fighter and showed her guts by having the second child she had so longed for. Times remained tough: nothing was available, neither machines nor material to produce underwear, but they managed with the help of some of their former clients. After some time, they finally got the underwear production going again and recoverd their flat.

In the following period they worked hard to make a good living, raise their family and their grandchildren in later years. Every Winter, remembering their sporty youth, they would rent a large flat in the mountains (French or Swiss Alps) and have the whole family spend a Winter holiday with them. Ilse skied until she was 75.

Upon retirement, they left Paris for a beautiful house in the suburbs where they welcomed family and friends in an ever-open house. Ilse remained very active, coming into the city twice a week to play bridge and attend sewing classes. She also baked regularly for her family.

At the age of 105, she moved back into the city, closer to her children and remained in her own flat for a few years, enjoying her daily walks in the Luxembourg Gardens, the hairdresser, the beauty parlor, the magazine kiosk, the shops and restaurants.

Aged 111, she is a resident in a brand-new home of which she was the first inhabitant, so that she is considered the "boss" of the place - and also the mascot, since she is, by far, the oldest resident! She still goes for a walk most days, reads a lot of magazines (without glasses!) and still speaks three langages fluently, but unfortunately her poor hearing prevents her from socializing as much as she would like to.
