Unity Valkyrie Mitford (8 August 1914 – 28 May 1948) was a member of the aristocratic Mitford family, tracing its origins in Northumberland back to the 11th century Norman settlement of England. Unity Mitford's sister Diana was married to Oswald Mosley, leader of the British Union of Fascists. In the UK and in Germany, she was a prominent and public supporter of Nazism and fascism and from 1936, a part of Hitler's inner circle of friends and confidants for five years. Following the declaration of World War II, Mitford attempted suicide, although doubts about the attempt were raised in the media following the declassification of MI5 government documentation.

Famous quotes containing the word unity:
“Civilization is a process in the service of Eros, whose purpose is to combine single human individuals, and after that families, then races, peoples and nations, into one great unity, the unity of mankind. Why this has to happen, we do not know; the work of Eros is precisely this.”
—Sigmund Freud (18561939)
