I may have already posted this web site on Inge but will again...just in case. I can't get it to translate into English from German so maybe you can use your own translater for it.

In his letter of condolence sent by Adolf Hitler (sent to Inga's mother) is cited GITLI (the sister of Inga?). I ask: GITLI is a name in German? A diminutive? If a diminutive: what name?

Neither have I, ghostsoldier, and I agree that it's a great photo. I believe the coat Inge Ley is wearing may actually be Norwegian fox, so perhaps the photo was taken on their departure from Norway? Though I'm surprised at the obviousness of the joins in the pelts. (I also still can't figure out the strange sort of hat she's wearing--some sort of a pith helmet-cum-ladies' hat?)

Helge, could you post the source for the photo?

Dear Vikki,
This is the famous fur. Robert Ley has paid $ 10,000.

It's a fascinating report, Helge, thanks for posting it. But the report is referring to two fur coats (and jewels) that belonged to Ley's mistress. I wonder whether they were the same coats he originally purchased for his wife? And while the coat bought in Norway was worth $10,000, he only paid 100 Marks for it. Not surprising, when the items (like the art from Paris and the coat from Norway) were being purchased in occupied countries. As the report says about his jewel collection, bought in various countries "at his own price".

Best,

~Vikki

To me it doesn't look like Norwegian fox at all. Norwegian/Arctic fox fur coats and hats are quite popular in Russia. If I saw Inga Ley's coat in a street in Moscow I would guess it would be rabbit or hare fur. By the way, coats made of rabbit, hare or squirrel typically have very obvious pelt joints. Another possibility is wolf fur, but that would seem to be a low grade of wolf fur.

Definitely not high-grade silver mink or sable.

Ley visited Norway in september 1940. I enclose some other pictures from the same source, The Museum of Bergen, also published on the site Norgeslexi.

Inga looks mighty tall when standing beside her husband and others. Anyone know how tall she was? Judging by some of these photos she looks like she might approach 6 feet.
