Heidelberg in People's Lives

Isabella Beeton: I was sent here to study piano as a young girl, around 1850. After living as one of the primary caretakers in a household of over 24 people, I was relieved at the much-needed break. I stayed here for two years before returning to my family in Epsom

Michael Fassbender: I was born here in 1977, to an Irish mother and a German father. My family moved away when I was two years old, in 1979, to Killarney, Ireland.
