Toller to Wed Girl Who Scorned Nazis

Download PDF for this date

Ernst Toller, German-Jewish author, scored one against the Nazis when it became known today that he is shortly to marry a charming young actress who not many months ago was a Nazi.

The girl is Lili Christiane Grantoff. Chosen for her stage work by Max Reinhardt when she was only 12, she became one of the well known film actresses of Germany. Recently, however, she became disgusted with Nazidom and refused to play in a German film. She is now in London, working in a camera supply store.
