Annemarie Hase (1900–1971) was a German actress and cabaret artist. She emerged as a star during the Weimar Republic, but because she was Jewish she faced increasing persecution following the Nazi takeover in 1933. In 1936 she went into exile in Britain, where she remained for the next decade. She was involved with various exile groups, and was employed by the BBC during the Second World War where she worked alongside Bruno Adler.[1][2]

Following the Allied victory over the Nazis, and occupation of Germany she returned to Berlin. In 1947 she appeared in the rubble film And the Heavens Above Us alongside Hans Albers and Lotte Koch.[3] She forged a career as a character actress, appearing in a number of East German films. She was known for her Socialist political views.
