Biography

Prince Hubertus zu Loewenstein-Wertheim-Freudenberg (October 14, 1906 – November 28, 1984) was a German historian and political figure who was an early opponent of Adolf Hitler. He fled Germany and helped to promote anti-Nazism in the United States. He was a former member of Parliament, and was the author of over 40 books. He was the head of the Free German Authors Association, and was decorated by Pope John XXIII for work toward reconciliation between the Roman Catholic and the Greek Orthodox church.

Prince Hubertus was instrumental in returning the island Helgoland to West-Germany from Britain which used this high-sea island for bombing trainings after World War II. He was survived by his wife, Princess Helga, and his three daughters, Princess Elisabeth, Princess Konstanza, and Margarethe von Schwarzkopf, a successful journalist in her own rights.
