May 20, 2018

"Killing Mata Hari" tells the true story of Margaretha Geertruda Zelle, known to most of us as Mata Hari, the dancer supposedly turned spy and definitely executed in 1917. Much information has come to light about her, telling a poignant story of a precocious young girl whose father ran out on her and whose mother died when she was young, leaving her seeking love from all the wrong people in all the wrong places.  

Bonus episode from 1001 Classic Short Stories & Tales: EYEWITNESS TO THE SAN FRANCISCO EARTHQUAKE AND FIRE IN 1906 (surprise journalist).
