Lionel Royce

Lionel Royce

Lionel Royce was an Austrian actor who lost his job for being Jewish in Nazi Germany. He then went to the Alps, grew a beard, and bleached all of his hair, head, and body, by bathing every ten days in diluted hydrogen peroxide. He returned to the stage claiming to be Kaspar Brandhofer, a self-taught peasant actor and was praised by the Nazis as “proof of the superiority of Aryan blood.”
