A living history presentation on Mata Hari, the World War I spy and femme fatale, will be held Sunday, March 26, from 2 to 3:30 p.m. at the Aberdeen Library, 21 Franklin Street in Aberdeen. Mata Hari will be portrayed by Angela Yau.
"Margreet" Zelle MacLeod, better known as Mata Hari, was a Dutch citizen who was able to cross the borders of Europe freely because her home country of the Netherlands was neutral during the war. In 1916 she accepted an assignment to spy for France by passing along military information she learned from her conquests of German officers. She was accused of being a German spy and was executed by firing squad by the French in 1917.
The event is open to the public and free of charge. For more information, visit hcplonline.org.
