Irene von Meyendorff ( 1916 - 2001) was controversial German actress of the WW2 period who is said to have been one of the many lovers of Goebbels.
While some sources say that she was closely related to some Nazi, others say that she opposed them.
During those tarnished years German film and theatre were made vehicles of Nazi propaganda. From the start her background, both aristocratic and Weimar Bohemian, placed her at odds with Nazi ideology. The Uxkuell family to which she belonged were related to the von Stauffenbergs, and her first husband, Heinz Zahler, was the part of the Kreisar circle which plotted to replace Hitler with a military government.
