The Diva of the Third Reich

Zarah Leander

"Hitler thought that Zarah was wonderful, but Goebbels was put off by her independent attitude, her love of aquavit and her insistence on being paid in Swedish Kroner."
-Antje Ascheid


  1. *sigh*
    I wish there was a third riech I could be the diva of today.

  2. Everyone said Leander would have made it big without the help from the Nazis, she was that good, but she choose to be the darling of the Nazi-run UFA Studios and never apologised for it.


I eat your comments with jam and butter.
