Frau Korn helped everyone in the community cleaning houses, gardening, hauling wood and other chores. She rode her bicycle, called a Waffenrad, up and down steep hills in all kinds of weather well into her eighties. A Waffenrad was made from melted metal parts of weapons when supplies were meager after the World Wars. When my car needed some repairs she offered to loan me her bicycle, even though she was pulling a wagon of wood at the time!
