Who was Unity Mitford?
In Britain and in Germany, she was a prominent and public supporter of Nazism and fascism and from 1936, a part of Hitler's inner circle of friends and confidants for five years. Following the declaration of World War II, Mitford attempted suicide, although doubts about the attempt were raised in the media following the declassification of MI5 government documentation.
