<p><strong>Bronja Zahlingen</strong> (1912–2000) joined the Anthroposophical Society in 1932, at the age of twenty. The kindergarten she built up in Vienna brimmed with life until 1938, with the invasion of Austria. She went to Britain and, after the war ended, returned to Vienna to re-establish a Waldorf kindergarten. In her later years she worked with colleagues in the United States to develop the Waldorf kindergarten movement. Colleagues Brigitte Goldman and Elisabeth Gergeley write, “Creating a space for children in which their future humanity could develop—this was the life task to which Bronja Zahlingen devoted herself. . . . We have learned much from her.”</p>
