Greta Schröder

Unread post by LampyMeier2007 » Mon Oct 13, 2014 10:34 am

There is some speculation about her death date, some sources list 1967 as her death date and others 1980. Whats wrong, whats right ?

As Addition I have found (in German) a text from the book "Filmkunst: Zeitschrift für filmkultur und filmwissenschaft " from year 1975 : "Ernst Matray war dreimal verheiratet. Zuerst mit der Schauspielerin Greta Schroeder, die noch heute als Greisin in Berlin lebt. Sie hatten einen Sohn, der in Australien wohnte ... "

In the text is mention that she was 1975 still alive and living in Berlin. ("today living as old woman in Berlin")

Heres the link (in German), but this time from year 1980 , the same words as in 1975 Edition : http://books.google.de/books?id=zu4mAQA ... CCQQ6AEwAQ" target="_blank" target="_blank

And this link also in German : https://sites.google.com/site/ellenhutter/" target="_blank

So does this mean the 1967 date is wrong?

For me its more likely that she died in 1980.
Kay Weniger an Austrian writer of books on media issues who published an eight-volume encyclopedia on international film people also says in his 2011 book "Es wird im Leben dir mehr genommen als gegeben ..." that she died in 1980.
