Miss Universe, 1942

‘Berlin and its environs are heavenly at this time of year’ said Miss Universe. ‘I spent a peaceful afternoon on the shores of the Wannsee – so restful! I believe there was some sort of conference there a few months ago. Then on to Dachau, where I lunched with the officers and had a photocall – one of them gave me his cap with that provocative little badge picked out in silver thread. They showed me round the camp, where I viewed the showers and saw the huge chimneys for the heating system. Next stop Poland!’
