Created by Jaspedia (talk), Victuallers (talk), Oronsay (talk), and Blythwood (talk). Nominated by Andrew Davidson (talk) at 15:08, 27 June 2019 (UTC).

QPQ: Done.

Overall: Symbol confirmed.svg Some paragraphs uncited, as well as the later life and death section. No paragraph or section should end without a citation. Please verify all content with in-line citations so that the maintenance tag can be removed and the DYK approved.

Comment I think we may need the book Miss Eckstein und ihr Peace on Earth by Karl Eberhard Sperl (2018), or another German source, such as Seien Sie doch vernünftig“ Frauen der Coburger Geschichte (2008). Digitised US and British/Irish newspapers can be cited for some sections, but don't have much information about her life in Germany before she arrived in the US, and none for post-WWI.

RebeccaGreen I consider the adequate sourcing issue largely addressed. Just looking for one more reference at Until their deaths in 1923 and 1926 Eckstein cared for her disabled sister Toni and her mother, respectively. or, conversely, that sentence could be removed.

I have been trying to find a source with that information, but haven't yet. If it will not make the article too short, it might be simpler to delete it for now. RebeccaGreen (talk) 17:23, 28 July 2019 (UTC)
@Enwebb: Victuallers has moved the sentence about the mother and sister to the end of the previous paragraph. Is this sufficient for the sourcing now, or should we delete it until a source can be found? RebeccaGreen (talk) 15:58, 29 July 2019 (UTC)
RebeccaGreen I think it would be best to remove it for now rather than risk that it be inaccurate while on the main page. Enwebb (talk) 16:02, 29 July 2019 (UTC)
Enwebb  Done If any other sentences or statements need citations, I'll be happy to try to address them from the current sources. RebeccaGreen (talk) 16:26, 29 July 2019 (UTC)
Approved. Enwebb (talk) 16:58, 29 July 2019 (UTC)
