Waltraud “Waldi” Anna Gault became a U.S. citizen in 1970 in Chicago.
“I am born of German descent in a place very few people have ever heard of, in the town of Eger in the Sudetenland, in Bohemia. Today, the town is called Cheb and in the Czech Republic.”
Eger was one of the oldest and most prosperous cities. It is first mentioned in 1061 when it was founded by Celtic tribes.
