“Nazi Princess: Hitler, Lord Rothermere and Princess  Stephanie von Hohenlohe” by Jim Wilson is a full story of the woman of Jewish descent who spied for Hitler among British high society, persuaded the Daily Mail to support the Nazis, and was awarded the Gold Cross of the Nazi Party

Stephanie Julianne von Hohenlohe, born Stephany Julienne Richter (16 September 1891 – 13 June 1972), is notable for having been a spy for Nazi Germany during the 1930s in Great Britain and Europe. Reportedly Jewish by birth, and a member of a German princely family by marriage, she developed close connections among the Nazi hierarchy, including  Adolf  Hitler, Göring, Himmler (who declared her an “honorary Aryan”), and von Ribbentrop.

Most notoriously, she was paid a retainer of £5,000 per year by Lord Rothermere, owner of the Daily Mail and the Daily Mirror and an open supporter of the Nazi regime.

The British, French and Americans all suspected her of being a spy for the German Government. During the 1930s, she was awarded the Gold Medal of the Nazi Party for her services.

Fleeing from Britain to San Francisco in 1939 after war was declared, the US put her under surveillance. A memo to President Roosevelt described her as a spy “more dangerous than ten thousand men.”After the attack on Pearl Harbor she was arrested by the FBI and interned in the United States as an enemy alien. She provided information to the Office of Strategic Services which was used in a 1943 report on the personality of Adolf  Hitler. I

n May 1945 she was released on parole and returned to Germany, where she cultivated influential connections in post-war German society.

This new biography uses recently declassified MI5 files and FBI memos to examine what motivated both Stefanie and Rothermere, shedding light on the murky goings-on behind the scenes in Britain, Germany, and the U.S. before and during World War II.
