Allen Dulles


Coco Chanel

COMMENT: We have known for some time that fashion mover and shaker Coco Chanel had strong Vichy French/Nazi affiliations. An important recent book, “The Devil’s Chessboard” [8] about Allen Dulles gives us added depth on the subject.

The late “fascionista” was networked with none other than Reichsfuhrer SS Heinrich Himmler, having served as one of his go-betweens in attempts to negotiate a separate peace for Germany with Allen Dulles.

Q: “That’s a wonderful perfume you’re wearing. What is it?”

A: “It’s Chanel No. 88, Eau d’Auschwitz. Thank you”

The Devil’s Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of America’s Secret Government by David Talbot; Harper [HC]; 2015; Copyright 2015 by The Talbot Players LLC; ISBN 978-0-06-227616-2; pp. 34-35. [9]

 . . . At one point, Himmler even recruited fashion designer Coco Chanel, bringing her to Berlin to discuss strategy. . . .
