December 20, 1938 —

She was known in the milongas as Greta.  She went every Saturday night to Club Juvenil until it closed in 2001.  There hasn’t been another milonga like it.  I filmed Greta dancing with milongueros.

One night several years ago in Lo de Celia, Alito asked if I had Greta’s telephone number.  I told him that I did.  He introduced me to Jorge who said that he wanted to call her.  They had known each other during their teenage years.  I checked first with Greta about giving her telephone to Jorge.  She said it was fine.  Later I heard more of the story.  Greta and Jorge knew each other when they were 16 and 19 years old.  They went their separate ways.  Greta married and had a family. After fifty years, Jorge called Greta.  They were reunited.  I took this photo of them on August 17, 2003, when they were in Lo de Celia.  They have been together ever since.
