A Lady with a Hat
En dame med hatt
Jewish milliner May Aubert grew up in Kristiania with an English father and a German mother. Before the Second World War, she was an apprentice hat maker in Berlin and delivered hats to the brightest stars of the legendary UFA Studios, such as Marlene Dietrich and Elisabeth Bergner. May Aubert became a refugee, war hero and money smuggler. Now eighty-seven, she still goes to work every day and is Norwegian Queen Sonia’s regular milliner.
