Helene Bertha Amalie "Leni" Riefenstahl (22 August 1902 – 8 September 2003) was a German film director, dancer and actress widely noted for her aesthetics and innovations as a filmmaker. Her most famous film was Triumph of the Will, a propaganda film made at the 1934 Nuremberg congress of the Nazi Party.

Leni Riefenstahl in In the Presence of Mine EnemiesEdit

Leni Riefenstahl (1902-c. 2007) was most famous for directing the film Triumph of the Will, which was required viewing for schoolchildren in the Greater German Reich well into the 21st century.

Riefenstahl predeceased Kurt Haldweim, the third Führer, by only a few years. She was over 100 years old.[1]

Literary NoteEdit

Leni Riefenstahl died a few months before the novel was published, but almost certainly after the book was completed and presented to the publisher. Apparently Harry Turtledove imagined Riefenstahl as having died some years after 2003 in the Presence timeline.
