Hannelore Kohl


German 'first lady' as the wife of Helmut Kohl who served as Chancellor from 1982 to 1998. She met him for the first time at a prom in Ludwigshafen, Germany, when she was 15 years old. She chose the portmanteau "Hannelore" to be used as her first name.

In the days following Germany's defeat in World War II, at the age of 12, Hannelore Kohl was raped by Red Army soldiers and subsequently “thrown out of a window like a sack of potatoes by the Russians.” In addition to the obvious psychological impact, the attacks left her with a fractured vertebra and back pain for the rest of her life. In order to help others with similar injuries, in 1983 she founded the Kuratorium ZNS, a foundation that helps those with trauma-induced injuries to the central nervous system, and became its president.

On 27 June 1960, she married Kohl, after he had already asked for her hand in marriage in 1953, delaying the ceremony until he was financially stable. Both had known each other since 1948, when they met in a dancing class. They had two sons, Walter Kohl (born 1963) and Peter Kohl (born 1965). Hannelore Kohl had studied languages and spoke fluent French and English; during her husband's political career, she was an important adviser to him, especially on world affairs. She was a steadfast advocate of German reunification even before it seemed feasible, and of NATO and Germany's alliance with the United States.

On 5 July 2001, Kohl was found dead at age 68 in her Ludwigshafen home. She had apparently committed suicide with an overdose of sleeping pills, after years of suffering from what she had claimed to be a very rare and painful light allergy induced by an earlier penicillin treatment that had forced her to avoid practically all sunlight for years. In 2005, the Kuratorium ZNS was renamed ZNS - Hannelore Kohl Stiftung in her honour.

However, journalist Andrew Gimson, writing in The Spectator, cast doubt upon the official version of events. Similar questions were also raised by the German news magazine Stern and the BBC.

Meridian magazine quotes 11:15 AM from the biography Hannelore Kohl: Ihr Leben by Dona Kujacinski and Peter Kohl (Droemer, 2002), page 25: "Am siebten März 1933, um elf Uhr fünfzehn, wird Hannelore in der Bavarier-Klinik in der Münchener Straße 49 in Berlin-Schöneberg geboren."

Sy Scholfield cites 11 AM from birth record quoted in Die Frau an seiner Seite: Leben und Leiden der Hannelore Kohl by Heribert Schwan (Heyne Verlag, 2011): "1933 . . . An jenem 7. März erblickte Hannelore Renner morgens um 11 Uhr in der Berliner Bavaria-Klinik im Stadtbezirk Schöneberg das Licht der Welt – zwei Monate vor dem errechneten Termin. Die Klinik in der Münchener Straße war das nächstgelegene Krankenhaus zum Wohnsitz des Ehepaars Wilhelm und Irene Renner in der Kaiser-Wilhelmstraße 153 in Berlin-Lankwitz. . . . Sechs Tage nach Hannelores Geburt erschien der stolze Vater, der wenige Wochen zuvor 43 Jahre alt geworden war, auf dem Standesamt in Schöneberg. In »Anwesenheit des Ingenieurs Renner« – so ist es protokolliert – stellte ein Standesbeamter Hannelores Geburtsurkunde aus, die mit der Nummer 58."
