"The Half-Woman", from a Ripley's Believe It or Not!? book:"'Violetta', as she prefers to be known, was born without arms of legs, or normal parents less than thirty years ago in Germany. She is a lady of perennial good nature - realizing that what one never possesses one never misses. Her body is well formed otherwise, she enjoys perfect health, and her senses of sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch are all developed and perfected in their separate and various functions far beyond the average normal person's."Violetta's accomplishments in overcoming the unkindness of Mother Nature are astounging. She rarely needs the assistance of anyone, and is able to get about with remarkable facility. She can dress herself, comb her own hair, thread a needle, sew, and perform other feats apparently bordering on the impossible."Violetta, born Aloisia Wagner in Germany in 1906, was evidently a talented singer. She appeared with several American sideshows including Comey Island's Dreamland in the 1920s.
