On August 29, 2002 was the 30th death anniversary of the singer Lale Andersen (photo). The North German woman gained worldwide fame in 1941 with a single song. Her hit "Lili Marleen" became the unofficial anthem of the soldiers, identifying herself, like no other interpreter, with the fictional character Lili Marleen. Lale Andersen was born Liese-Lotte Helene Berta Bunnenberg on March 23, 1905 in Lehe near Bremerhaven. She made a big comeback after the war with photos like "Unter der roten Laterne von St. Pauli", "Blaue Nacht am Hafen" and "Ein Schiff wird kommen".
