New Book Suggests Chanel Betrayed Her Jewish Partners to the Nazis in 1930s

FSWC Reports:


A new book claims that iconic fashion designer Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel tried to betray her Jewish business partners, Paul and Pierre Wertheimer, during the rise of fascism and the Nazis in Europe in the 1930s.

In the book, "The Secret of Chanel No. 5," author Tilar Mazzeo claims that Chanel wrote to German officials arguing that their company, Les Parfums Chanel, was "Jewish property" and that it should be confiscated and then redistributed solely back to her.
