Russian Olga Chekhova was the niece of playwright Anton Chekhov and a famous Nazi-era film actress who was closely associated with Hitler. After fleeing Bolshevik Moscow for Berlin in 1920, she was allegedly recruited by her composer brother Lev to become a Soviet spy - a career she spent her entire postwar life denying. Nevertheless, she ingeniously played powerful figures off against each other to survive the revolution, the war, and Stalin's purges.
