Personal Pictures Of EVA BRAUN

Eva Braun was the mistress of Adolf Hitler for 13 years, and for a little more than a day was his wife. Hitler began to regularly meet Eva in 1930, causing great concern to his then-lover (who was also his niece) Geli Raubal. In September 1931, after another quarrel with Hitler, Geli committed suicide. Hitler was terribly grieved over her death (there were rumors that the 23-year-old niece-mistress was pregnant). He also tried to commit suicide. But still less than six months later Eva Braun, had successfully taken the place of Geli, and life went on. Eva Braun was very fond of photography, and took many pictures of Hitler. We offer a look at some of the pictures from her personal archive, which was confiscated in 1945 by the U.S. military, and now belongs to collector Reinhard Schultz.

The following is the personal collection of pictures of Eva Braun

Eva Braun was born Feb. 6, 1912 in Munich. Eva was one of a school teacher called Frederick Braun's  three daughters. The family strictly followed Catholic traditions. The Braun family was considered very well endowed: they could afford a maid, as well as their own car. 

Eva Braun graduated from high school, and then spent another year in school at the monastery, where she was considered an average student and a talented athlete. Athletic Eva Braun devoted more than a year and was even a member of the Sports Union of Swabia. At the age of 17, Eva got a job at a shop owned by the photographer Heinrich Hoffmann, the official photographer of the Nazi party in Germany. Through this work she met Hitler, who was older than her 23 years. This meeting took place in the Munich studio in October 1929. Hitler presented himself to Eve as "Herr Wolff" (the nickname Hitler used in 1920 for conspiracy). By 1931, Eva Braun and Hitler already had a strong relationship going, although the Eva's family strongly objected to this.

This photograph was taken in 1942 in Berghof, Hitler's Alpine residence. Eva Braun and Hitler frequently stayed at the Berghof, and here they were profusely photographed. The residence guarded by the SS command, and in 1944 the security detachment had almost 2000 people. This magnificent residence was completely destroyed during the bombing of April 25, 1945, shortly before the suicide of Hitler and Eva Braun. The ruins of the Berghof lasted until 1952. The Bavarian government ordered them to be demolished on April 30, 1952.

Eva Brown poses with Albert Speer, architect and Reich armaments and military industries. Speer was one of the closest circle of  Fuhrer's people. Speer was the author of Master Plan for Reconstruction of Berlin, which, according to Hitler, had become the capital of the world. 

During the Nuremberg trials of Albert Speer was accused of using concentration camp prisoners as slave laborers. Speer pleaded guilty and received 20 years in prison. Speer had to serve the full term, and he was released only on Sept. 30, 1966. In prison he wrote the book "Memoirs," which was a huge success. Later he published several books. Albert Speer died on September 1, 1981, while in London.

History Quotes

May 1945 - If hell on earth existed, than it existed in Prague after May the 5th. 1945. Old men, women and children were beaten to death and maimed. Rapes, barbaric cruelties, horror-scenarios of hellish proportions - here they had been let lose.

- Ludek Pachmann, Czech Chess-Grand Master and publicist, forty years after the fact.

This short but important battle played a key role in the decision to use atomic bombs when attacking Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The battle showed just how far Japanese troops would go to defend their country.

Snippets From History

Paulus didn't give the order to 6th Army to surrender, but his troops no longer had much fight left in them. Resistance faded out over the next two days, with the last die-hards finally calling it quits. One Red Army colonel shouted at a group of prisoners, waving at the ruins all around them: "That's how Berlin is going to look!

Points to Ponder: Why Is China Unstable?

The aim of individuals in any society is money and power. Societies that give equal chance to all its members to get them will be the most stable. That is why democracies are more stable than other systems of governance.

China after Deng's reform gave the chance to get rich but power is in the hands of an elite; the Communist Party of China. Membership to the party is at the whims of the local party bosses. This leaves out many people who crave political power dissatisfied and disgruntled. There in lies the roots of instability. The Party suppressed these demands once at Tiananmen in 1989. But force is hardly the way to deal with things like these.
