Kitty’s Salon By Nigel Jones AudioBook Summary
Sex, surveillance and the most sinister Nazi of them all in wartime Berlin
There is no book in English about the wartime Berlin ‘salon’ run by Kitty Schmidt under the secret control of Reinhard Heydrich, one of the architects of the Final Solution
Salon Kitty was the most notorious brothel in the decadent Berlin of the Weimar Republic – the city of Cabaret. But after the Nazis took power, it became something more dangerous: a spying centre with every room wired for sound, staffed by women agents specially selected by the SS to coax secrets from their VIP clients. Masterminded by Reinhard Heydrich, the spymaster whom Hitler himself called ‘the man with the iron heart’, the exclusive establishment turned listening post was patronised by the Nazi leaders themselves, not knowing that hidden ears were listening.
