Lagerfeld has shied away from revealing his true date of birth, but according to Biography.com, it likely falls on September 10, 1933, in Hamburg, Germany - the same year former German Chancellor Adolf Hitler rose to power.
Lagerfeld also revealed he knew someone who took in a young Syrian, and after a few days of being in the German home, the refugee allegedly said, "the greatest thing Germany invented was the Holocaust". Speaking out against the refugee policy in Germany, he blamed Merkel, describing it as her effort to look good to the public. "She had no need to take another million to improve her image as the wicked stepmother after the Greek crisis". "Suddenly, we see the pastor's daughter", he added, making reference to the chancellor's father, who was a Protestant pastor.
