Eva Braun

A former employee of Adolf Hitler’s personal photographer, Heinrich Hoffmann, Eva Braun became Hitler’s mistress and his companion in the early 1930s and remained so throughout World War II. She spent much of her time at Hitler’s mountain retreat, the Berghof, and was rarely seen in public. Braun was often unhappy and attempted suicide twice during their relationship. She was a photography and film enthusiast and captured much of the known visual record of Hitler’s private moments at the Berghof. As Nazi Germany crumbled and the Soviet Red Army advanced through the streets of Berlin, Hitler married Eva Braun in the Führerbunker on April 29, 1945. The following day, the two committed suicide. At the time of her death, Eva Braun was 33 years old.
