Could anyone provide me with any infos, photos and related material about Gräfin Hella von Westarp? All I know is that she was a member of the Thule Gesellschaft and assassinated in 1919. :)

thanks!

Does anyone know if she was the sister of Oberleutnant zur See Graf Westarp, who was commander of the Kraftfahrabteilung of Major von Stephani's Potsdam Freikorps? According to von Stephani, he and von Westarp disguised themselves as Spartacists in order to reconnoitre the Vorwärts building and surrounding area the day before the Freikorps' attack.
