Tekla Juniewicz was born in 10th June 1906; she is the world's third-oldest living person, the 27th oldest person ever whose age has been verified and by far the oldest Polish person ever.

The third-oldest living person, dear Tekla, has crossed one of the biggest gaps (66 days) in the top 100, by finally surpassing Maggie Barnes. 116 is getting close now. If she makes it, I believe the "116+ Era" is still in play...

Ms. Juniewicz has received the visit of the Polish Prime minister Mateusz Morawiecki. A tweet from earlier yesterday by Mr. Morawiecki about his visit with Ms. Juniewicz, including more photos:

https://twitter.com/MorawieckiM/status/1532772081267621888?cxt=HHwWgIC-mciFwMUqAAAA

Translation of the tweet:
"Almost 8 billion people in the world, and it is impossible to find another one like Ms Tekla Juniewicz. By the way, Ms. Tekla is the 2nd oldest person in the world. Still full of joy and energy. She is celebrating her 116th birthday in a week's time. Another 100 years, Mrs. Tekla!"
