At age 3, Mrs. Brasz-Later moved to Indonesia (then the Dutch colony 'Dutch East Indies') and lived there for 40 years until she returned to her native country In 1949, at age 43. In her later years, she started to live in an apartment near a retirement home in Transwijk in the town of Utrecht. Unfortunately, she can't attempt many things, as her daughter Elisabeth stated: She suffers a lot on her neck and legs. Besides that, she can only move on with a rollator . Mrs. Brasz-Later prefers to be left alone on special occasions such as her birthday. In 2016, she and her daughter went on holiday to Maastricht in the province of Limburg to avoid the press and the mayor's visit. Even though the press and the mayor aren't welcome, she still enjoys life, as her daughter Elisabeth stated: Mom is ok, she still remembers most things very good. If it's possible, she is planning to stay here for a while.
