Sisters in Resistance

How a German Spy, a Banker's Wife, and Mussolini's Daughter Outwitted the Nazis

In 1944, Benito Mussolini's daughter, Edda, gave Hitler and her father an ultimatum: release her husband, Italy's foreign minister Galeazzo Ciano, from prison, or risk her leaking her husband's journals to the press. Hilde Beetz, a German spy, was deployed to seduce Ciano to learn the diaries' location and take them from Edda — but Hilde converted as a double agent, joining forces with Edda to save Ciano from execution. When this failed, Edda fled to Switzerland with Hilde’s daring assistance, where she met Frances De Chollet, an "accidental" American spy. Together, they succeeded in preserving one of the most important documents of the war.

In a tale as twisted as any spy thriller, discover how three women — a Fascist's daughter, a German spy, and an American banker’s wife — risked their lives to ensure the diaries would reach the Allies. Drawing from in‑depth research and first-person interviews with people who witnessed these events, Tilar J. Mazzeo gives readers a riveting look into this little‑known moment in history and shows how, without Edda, Hilde, and Frances's involvement, certain convictions at Nuremberg would never have been possible.
