Biography

Hans Schornack was born in Essen, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany on 29 February 1912. He worked as self-employed in the auto trade for many years. He drove a car until age 95.

In January 2021 at the age 108, he received his covid-19 vaccine, making him one of oldest people to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

Hans Schornack currently lives in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, at the age of 109 years, 229 days. Due to being born on leap day, he has only experienced his birthday 28 times throughout his entire life, with his most recent birthday having occurred in 2020. As a consequence, he would need to live to the age of 112 to reach his next birthday, when the next leap year occurs. He is the oldest known man ever born on leap day.
