[Below: Tragically Unity Mitford died in 1948 from complications from an attempted suicide in 1941 while living in Germany. She shot herself when war was declared between her homeland of Britain and Germany. Adolf Hitler, who was her friend, visited her in the hospital, paid her bill, and sent her home to England, where she died. Throughout most of her life she was a staunch National Socialist. She had tried in vain to prevent a war between the two countries.]
