Florentine Waldau was born on 10 December 1876 in Reitwein in the district of Lebus and ran a well-known bookshop in Fürstenwalde. She designed postcards, some of which are preserved in the town’s museum. In 1935, she was still living with her daughter Regina at Eisenbahnstraße 52 (today: Eisen­bahnstraße 144). In 1939, both women were registered at Wriezener Straße 12, in the house of the Jewish Kiwi family. The last trace of Florentine Waldau’s existence is her decla­ration of assets from April 1942.
