Mr. André Ludwig celebrated his 111th birthday on June 6, 2023, at a nursing home located in Longué-Jumelles, Maine-et-Loire, Pays de la Loire, France. Mr. Ludwig’s age has been validated by the European Supercentenarian Organisation (ESO) and the Les Grands Centenaires Français, and he is currently believed to be the oldest living man in Europe.

Mr. Ludwig was born on 6 June 1912 in the commune of La Ferté-sous-Jouarre, Seine-et-Marne département, Île-de-France region, France.

In 1939, he was mobilized for World War II and experienced all of its consequences, even being made a prisoner at the time. He was a member of the French Resistance in the east of the country, joining the Zone Libre (in France) to shelter his family.

In 2015, he moved into a nursing home in Longué-Jumelles, where he has been celebrating his past birthdays since then.

LongeviQuest send our warmest congratulations to Mr. André Ludwig and his family. We wish you good health and happiness.
