Interview with Lida Baarova - Joseph Goebbels secret mistress

Hi Guys,

I have a new video for you today. This time it is a brand new Interview with Lida Baarova, Joseph Goebbels secret mistress.
Here she remembers her time in the 3rd Reich and recollects what she has witnessed back then.


Lida Baarova born on September 7, 1914 as Ludmila Babková in Prague, was a Czech actress and singer.
After training at the Prague Acting Conservatory, Lida Baarova made her first film at the age of 17.

In 1934 she was hired by UFA, learned German and shot Barcarole in 1935. The male lead in this production was played by the married German actor Gustav Fröhlich, with whom Baarova was henceforth in a relationship.
In 1938, Lida Baarova won the "German Film Award in Gold" for her role in "Barcarole".

After Joseph Goebbels sought her out at Gustav Fröhlich's house, she became the Reich propaganda minister's secret mistress.
The scandalous relationship was also discussed publicly.

Since 1948 Lida Baarová lived in Salzburg.
She died 2000 in Salzburg.

Please enjoy watching!

Greets,

Es ist im Leben wichtig, viel zu wissen.
Manchmal ist es noch wichtiger, zu wissen, daß man nichts weiß.
