|Died||8 May 1991 (aged 78)|
|Other names||Katerina Matilde Krüger |
|Years active||1934–1958 (film)|
Krüger was born in 1912. One source says she was born in Cologne while another claims her birth occurred in Berlin on September 11, 1914. Her dramatic success was assigned to the patronage of Joseph Goebbels, which happened after she appeared in the anti-Semitic film Don't Lose Heart, Suzanne! She appeared in twenty more films.
She is suspected of working as a spy for the Abwehr, the German intelligence department during the Second World War, cultivating leading figures in Mexican society. She had intended to settle in Hollywood, but she struggled to find work and had to leave for Mexico.
She died in 1991 on a visit to Germany; the death certificate lists her residence as an apartment in New York City.
