    Biography They spent their formative years in a place called Schweitzer Reinecke, in what was then the Eastern Transvaal province. Albert Stern, their father, was a farmer, who came from the Fulda area in Germany.

    The marriage didn't last too long, and Martha  returned with the girls to Germany where they spent the First World War years. Martha later married Victor Gudenberg. They  had a son, Ulrich, who died tragically, aged sixteen. He dived into a pool and hit his head on the floor. There has been some suggestion that, being half Jewish, harassment from the Nazis led him to inflict this on himself. Martha never got over their loss, and said that she only lived half a life after this incident.

    Albert Stern got custody of the three sisters and they returned to South Africa when the first war ended. He too remarried, and the three girls had a miserable childhood with a stepmother who showed no affection for them at all.


    Hildegard died at 80 years of age as result of heart failure. When she left Jacobsdal as a child, she came to Johannesburg and finished her schooling at Parktown Convent. She then studied at Secretarial College. She went to her first job interview and was immediately hired by Dr Jokl, a prominent eye specialist, and she worked there until he retired many years later.  [1
