Marita Lorenz

Marita Lorenz was born in Germany in 1939 and as a child was incarcerated in the Bergen Belsen concentration camp. In the years that followed, she often sailed with her father, who was a ship captain, and, in 1959, she met Fidel Castro, with whom she fell in love. Later, the CIA would recruit her and send her to assassinate Castro, an act she was unable to commit. She now lives in Brooklyn, New York.
