HISTORY ELSE KIENTLZER: During the war, in 1943, destiny took her to the greenhouses of Ludwig Kientzler. She was just 19 years old at that time. The greenhouse was established by Ludwig Kientzler on October 15, 1904. With a specialized operation they soon gained a good reputation for high quality young plants throughout Germany. Mrs. Else met the only son of Ludwig Kientzler, who bore the same name. He had returned from the war front. In 1945 after leaving prisoner, they got married. Then they had three children: Ludwig, Helmut and Iris. In 1949, Grandfather Kientzler died at the age of 69. Ludwig as the only son and prepared in the field, assumed the responsibility of executing the operation. Years later, on March 19, 1960, he suffered an attack at the age of only 45 years that caused his death. Unexpectedly, the responsibility came to the woman of the family, the wife and the mother, in a combined effort. Mrs. Else, then began to live a double life: first as a mother, but at the same time as a cultivator and administrator of a company. Organizational guidance and talent, courage and determination, willpower and a sense of purpose were all required in equal measure.

“I believe that the ability to work quickly is a typical feminine attribute, this could be the result of the fact that a woman must always balance several things: family, profession and housework. This was necessary to provide management and serve as a model, without allowing the ego to destroy the heart”
