Agnes Bernauer was born in Berlin in 1923, daughter of a renowned Jewish-Hungarian theater impresario. She made her main contribution to the war effort in the guise of a German radio announcer, Vicky, the Allied answer to Tokyo Rose. Agnes bartered clothes for hotel bills, performed impromptu cabaret in Barcelona, summered in Cannes and received the affections of, among others, Claus von Bülow and King Farouk. In 1956 she shocked audiences as Salome - the first ""non-stationary nude"" in London theater. While auditioning for Footlights she devised the concept for her original satirical cabaret, based on the work of Brecht and Weil, that became the first solo show at Peter Cook's Establishment in Soho.

From the Back Cover:

Agnes Bernelle, one of Ireland's best-loved stage performers, was born Agnes Bernauer in Berlin in 1923, the daughter of a renowned Jewish-Hungarian theatre impresario. In this sparkling, intimate memoir she recounts her early years in Germany, her family's flight to London after Hitler came to power, her anti-Nazi broadcasts to the land of her birth, her turbulent loves and family life, the blossoming of her career in film and theatre - from wartime refugee cabaret to the West End - and her eventual move to Glaslough in Ireland in 1963.
