Default Eva Braun...(1912-1945)

At twenty five minutes past two, On the morning of February 7th 1912, Eva Anna Paula Braun was born in Munich. Later in life she was to become the mystery woman of Hitler's Third Reich. Wife of Hitler for one day, and his mistress for 12 years, she first met Hitler in 1929 while she was assistant to the beer-loving Heirich Hoffman the Third Reich's official photographer who had his shop at #50 Schellingstrasse, Munich. He had already joined the Nazi Party with nazi party card #427. Eva Braun committed suicide with Hitler on April 30, 1945, In his underground bunker in the Reich Chancellary gardens in Berlin. It was her third attempt, the first having been in November 1932 when she was found with a bullet in her neck. On May 28, 1935, Eva who often complained of Hitler's neglect, decided to take 35 sleeping pills just to "make certain". Late that night she was found unconscious by her sister, Isle, who called a doctor just in time to save her life. After her recovery Hitler brought her a villa in Wasserburgerstrasse, Munich, and supplied her with a car and a chauffeur. Although she knew about the persecution of the JEWS there is no evidence that she knew of what went on in the concentration camps.

Note: Eva never became a Nazi Party member, outside of Hitler's circle of cronies she was completely unknown to the general public until after the war.
