Lily Sergueiew was a Russian whose parents had emigrated to Paris after the Communist Revolution. She worked as a journalist for a German newspaper and in November 1940 volunteered to spy for the Nazis but became a double agent. Her biography up until the German invasion is fairly well documented. However, her English handlers were extremely shallow in their opinions of her. Col. Robertson's paranoia in his efforts to prevent her book from being published should justify her distrust of him. In reality, she had very little to say about him as she felt he was completely beneath her. She later, joined the French army and became an interpretor for a US Army major in helping relocate Buchenwald concentration camp victims, many whom were Russians. Lily spoke seven languages. She eventually married the US major, John B. Collings and lived her final five years in Cedar, Michigan. She was 38 when she died.
