Hitler's Black Book - information for Nancy Cunard
Original List ID
Date of Birth / Age
Nancy Clara Cunard (10 March 1896 – 17 March 1965) was a writer, heiress and political activist. In the mid-1930s she took up the anti-fascist fight as well, writing about Mussolini's annexation of Ethiopia and the Spanish Civil War. She predicted, accurately, that the "events in Spain were a prelude to another world war". Her stories about the suffering of Spanish refugees became the basis for a fundraising appeal in the Manchester Guardian. Cunard herself helped deliver supplies and organize the relief effort, but poor health – caused in part by exhaustion and the conditions in the camps – forced her to return to Paris, where she stood on the streets collecting funds for the refugees, during the war she worked as a translator for the French resistance in London.
