This is Pope Joseph Ratzinger: He was born on April 16, 1927 near the Bavarian town of Traunstein, Germany, where he spent his childhood and went to school.
This my mother (rest her soul). She was also born in Traunstein, Germany, on June 27, 1927, just two months after Joseph Ratzinger. Like him, she spent her childhood and teen years in Traunstein.
The assumption is that Mom and Joseph Ratinger knew each other.
(The rumor is that she drove him to the priesthood!)
