Biography

Alice Schaufelberger-Hunziker was born in Reitnau, Canton of Aargau, Switzerland on 11 January 1908. She was the youngest of three children. She spent her childhood in Reitnau and then later worked as a seller in a store in Zurich. As she worked there, she moved in with her sister, who lived in Uster.
