The daughter of top Nazi Heinrich Himmler was hired by West Germany’s foreign intelligence agency (BND) in the 1960s, officials have confirmed.
The revelation about Gudrun Burwitz was first reported in the German newspaper Bild following her death aged 88.
Her father was in Hitler’s inner circle and is viewed as the chief architect of the Holocaust. He killed himself in custody in 1945.
Burwitz never disavowed Nazism and defended her father’s reputation.
She was a teenager when the war ended and was released in 1946 after testifying at the Nuremberg trials.
