About the Book

In his metafictional novel, Frank Sanello vividly recreates the Third Reich and World War II as seen through the eyes and daily diary of Hitler's imaginary wife, Countess Christina Bernadotte (1916-1948). The granddaughter of the king of Sweden, the countess is forced at the age of 16 to marry the 43-year-old Nazi dictator by her socially ambitious and abusive mother, an heiress to the Vanderbilt fortune. Her husband, strung out on morphine and cocaine, makes revolting sexual demands on his virginal wife involving coprophilia, a fetish that eroticizes feces. Lonely and isolated, Frau Hitler throws herself into a series of transient love affairs with the Third Reich’s handsome foreign minister, the corrupt Joachim von Ribbentrop, Cary Grant, and Ernst Röhm, leader of the SA (Storm Troopers). Because of her many romantic liaisons, she doesn’t know the identity of the father of her son, Folke, except that he’s not her husband’s. As the Holocaust claims more victims, Christina begins smuggling Jews out of Germany right under her drug-addled husband’s nose. During the war, she travels to Auschwitz to rescue Jewish friends and bribes the Gestapo to allow other Jews to flee Nazi Germany. With her uncle, Count Folke Bernadotte, she helps organize the White Buses operation, a dangerous mission that transports 30,000 Jews and POWs to safety in Sweden aboard Red Cross buses painted white to avoid bombing the Allies or the Luftwaffe. As First Lady of the Reich, she meets or corresponds with various historical figures such as Sigmund Freud, Pope Pius XII and MGM chief Louis B. Mayer. Toward the end of the war, as she tries to flee home to Sweden with her son and adopted daughter, her arch-nemesis, Hermann Göring, Hitler’s second in command and pedophile, forces her to choose one of her children to leave behind with him. The choice haunts the countess until tragedy intervenes during her work as UN mediator between warring Palestinian Jews and Arabs in 1948. These dramatic events are recorded in her daily diary, which her grandson finds hidden in a Holocaust memorial library and publishes as emphasized textThe Autobiography of Frau Adolf Hitler.


[Editor’s note: In November 1941, Haj al-Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and the highest-ranking cleric in Palestine, had a personal audience with Adolf Hitler.
During their meeting, the Mufti made an offer Hitler could and did refuse. The cleric claimed he had cells in Nazi-occupied Poland which he could activate to murder Jews. The religious leader also promised to wage unholy jihad on Jewish settlers who sought refuge from Nazi persecution in Palestine.
For political and personal reasons, Hitler ignored the Mufti’s offer of an alliance with the Third Reich. The SS didn’t need any help in solving Europe's “Jewish Problem.”
Nazi Germany's secret service, the Abwehr, had informed the Fuehrer that the Mufti’s claims of having cells in Poland was a figment of the cleric’s febrile imagination.
“Minotaur” was Countess Bernadotte’s secret name for her despised husband. "Lady Susan" was her imaginary pen pal she confided in her daily diary.
November 7, 1941
Dear Lady Sue,
Yesterday, Hitler met with his Unholiness, the anything-but Grand Mufti. Afterwards, he ordered me to invite the odious Islamic cleric to tea because the Mufti had begged for an interview with “your lovely Frau, the First Lady of the Third Reich.” That title always makes me reach for the Schnapps.
These days, life is so chaotic, anything makes me reach for the comfort of fortified wines. No proof is too high for this wino.
Hitler’s order surprised me because he despised the Mufti as much as I did within five minutes of my meeting him. After their meeting, Hitler said to me, “Ach! Arabs are just Jews in funny hats! Hah! Hah! HAH!”
Just to get rid of his unwelcome guest, Hitler had told the Mufti, “The Jews are yours.” The cleric received a worthless process that the Third Reich would invade Palestine and expel the region’s British masters. Then, the Jews of Palestine would be the Mufti’s to exterminate.
added by Frank Sanello. "The Grand Mufti of Jersusalem is an historical character, one of many in the novel, which purports to be the daily diary of Adolf Hitler's wife, born Countess Christina Bernadotte."
