Susanne Erichsen Becomes the First Miss Germany of the Federal Republic of Germany (September 2, 1950)

Susanne Erichsen is one of the first German models to become an international top model. Her post-war storybook career almost seems like an allegory for Germany’s defeat and resurgence.

Susanne Erichsen is born as Susanne Firle in Berlin in 1925. Her mother comes from a lower middle class family, her stepfather is a talented engineer who moves the family to Leningrad for a few years. She spends the war in Berlin. Shortly after the end of the war she marries a Norwegian man named Sven Erichsen. They make plans to move to Norway together but are deported to the Soviet Union. They are separated and never see each other again. After two years of hard labour to rebuild Stalinogorsk Susanne Erichsen returns to the German capital in 1947. During a visit to Munich the fashion journalist Lore Wolf discovers her. She begins to work as a mannequin and photo model. While vacationing on the island of Sylt in the early summer of 1950 she participates in the beauty contest of Schleswig Holstein and wins. In September she goes on to win the Miss Germany beauty contest in Baden-Baden. Less than a week later she participates in the Miss Europe pageant in Rimini, Italy. From now on photographers are smitten with the tall brunette women with the almond shaped eyes and high cheekbones. In 1952 she travels to the USA as an “ambassador of German fashion”. Fascinated by her un-German looks and her tragic story the American press comes up with the name “Fräuleinwunder.” She ends up staying in New York for more than 10 years, where she makes more money in an hour than a German worker in an entire month. After her return to Berlin she founds her own fashion label and mannequin and model school. In 2002 she dies as a result of a stroke.
