Marlene, First and Last.

Marie Magdalene Dietrich was born on December 27th 1901 at 65 Leberstraße ( then called Sedanstraße) in the Schöneberg district of Berlin.

She died in May 1992, aged 90, at her apartment in Paris where she had lived almost as a recluse for the last 11 years. Shortly after her death a plaque was unveiled at her birthplace.

Her body was returned to Berlin and she was interred at Städtischer Friedhof III , in the district of Friedenau, close to her mothers grave and her birthplace.
