Good thing television wasn’t mainstream then, or they might have made a TV series based on “Casablanca”, with an episode featuring an actor playing Winston Churchill stopping at Rick’s.

January 27, 1943:


"Still alive today, Stella Goldschlag was a German Jew who had Aryan looks. In her youth, the shapely blue-eyed blonde was a compulsive liar and renegade who desperately hated her Jewishness.
Threatened, along with her parents, with deportation to the East and tortured by the Gestapo, Goldschlag was among a small number of Jews who collaborated with the Nazis and worked for the Gestapo.
She received money, good food, and a temporary reprieve from deportation for her parents.

"Using sex, her incredible memory, and her ruthlessness, Goldschlag's job was to root out the other so-called "U-boats"--Jews living underground in Berlin during the war--and to help the Gestapo arrest them.
Those Jews would be sent off to extermination camps.
On one weekend alone, Goldschlag helped the Gestapo catch 62 Jews.
She was indeed the "Blonde Poison," seducing Jews to their deaths."
