Jutta  Jacobi - Zarah Leander


On the rise and fall of one of the last great stars of the 20th century

Kann denn Liebe Sünde sein, Yes, Sir, Davon geht die Welt nicht unter – Zarah Leander's songs are golden oldies, her stage appearances legendary. The shadow over her career: her role in the Third Reich.

Jutta Jacobi has unearthed some hitherto unknown facts that put the picture of the diva in a new light. It is a truly European story, and it is about the greed for fame and money, of great triumphs and being ostracised, of stage nerves, alcohol and depression, of loyal fans and offensive journalists, of never-ending spying rumours and the superb staging of her own self: as a diva.
