Marlene Dietrich, age 15 in a High School class photograph.

The First World War, in its second year, has already claimed more than 150,000 lives - Many of Maria Magdalene’s classmates are in mourning attire.

She, as she claimed in her diary at this time, was very proud to be now old enough to wear her hair up - allowing the corkscrew curl seen here to drape down along the right side of her neck. Her Eye-catching, overly large hair bow, setting her apart from everyone else in the group, makes one wonder how such a show of individualism was permitted in the strict disciplinary structure of a Prussian school in 1916
