Semitic Nazi spy called Westminster A new book about the life of Coco Chanel published in the United States on Tuesday aims to strengthen claims the French designer collaborated with the Nazis during World War II as a spy code named Westminster. The book, Sleeping With The Enemy: Coco Chanel s Secret War, by Paris based American journalist Hal Vaughan, claims that not only was the designer the lover of a German officer, Hans Gunther von Dincklage, which has been well documented, but they were spies who went on missions to Madrid and Berlin. Vaughn reveals that Chanel was more than just a Nazi sympathizer and collaborator. She was a numbered Nazi agent working for Abwehr, Germany s military intelligence agency, publisher Alfred A. Knopf said in a statement. But a representative for the Chanel fashion house on Tuesday poured doubt on the book s allegations. What s certain is that she had a relationship with a German aristocrat during the War. Clearly it wasn t the best period to have a love story with a German even if Baron von Dincklage was English by his mother and Moncler Men Shoes she (Chanel) knew him before the War, the Chanel group said in a statement. The fashion house also disputed that the designer was anti Semitic, saying Chanel would not have had Jewish friends or ties with the Rothschild family of financiers if she were. In his book, Hal Vaughn claims that Coco Chanel was anti Semitic But the book draws on English, French, German and American archives to claim Chanel, whose menswear inspired fashions propelled her to become one of the most influential figures in fashion, went on missions with Dincklage and others to help recruit new agents willing to serve Germany. It gives her Abwehr agent number as F 7124 and code name as Westminster, named after the Duke of Westminster with whom she had a love affair. She died in Paris in 1971, age 87. She has long been speculated about as being a spy, but was released after being questioned about her ties to Nazi Germany by a judge in France. The book prints some excerpts of her court testimony. Chanel famous tweed jacket 1948 and chain handbag the 2/55 was made on 1955 and never stopped Monlcer Coats Men Mid-Length Doudoune Light Black selling since, it takes 72 hours to make one with 3 people handling it, 66 years later they still are the best sellers and most elegant women in the world. It seems more and more that there is a lack of understanding of the reality of World War II and what people knew and what they didn t as it was going Moncler Down Jackets Women Two Sided Hooded Zip Coffee Brown on. The endless up to the minute news reports and constant media coverage of today was not present in the 1930s and 1940s. Before the start of WWII many people liked Hitler and thought he was doing a good job turning the German economy around. Then during the war, the atrocities of the death camps weren t fully known until late in the war. Most of the German people weren t even aware. My point is, more and more, we see this revisionist type of historical accounting where people are being labled Nazi Collaborators. If Chanel or Edith Piaf weren t in the French Resistance, did that automatically make them Collaborators? I think that s unfair and it s very easy to make these types of accusations in books for profit now that the people are dead. History and the people who actually lived through it, deserve much more respect than this. Edmonde Charles Roux wrote the definitive biography on Gabrielle Chanel. After becoming exasperated at Coco s evasions and misdirections while researching the book, Edmonde resorted to pursuing the truth about Coco from fresh sources, other than her subject. Edmonde left no stone unturned.
