Leni Riefenstahl was a film maker of Nazi party propaganda. She was
despised by Jewish people for her support of Nazism. What I am trying
to find out is whether Leni Riefenstahl was in fact Jewish?

Dear ranier11-ga,

According to her autobiography, Leni Riefenstahl by Leni Riefenstahl,
she was a Protestant.

Page 11: Easter Sunday 1918, "I was confirmed at  the Kaiser Wilhelm
Memorial Church".

Page 104: circa 1932, "Monsignor Frings asked me whether I would be
willing to make films for the Catholic Church. As a Protestant I was
absolutely amazed by this offer."
