1: ihrem Kampf Eva Braun
2: A letter to her sister Gretl Eva Braun later wrote about the meeting: "I had stayed after closing time to straighten up several things and was standing on the ladder putting something away on the top shelf. Then I heard the door open and saw the boss come in with a somewhat older man carrying a felt hat in his hand. I tried to watch them without their noticing ... When I came down off the ladder the boss introduced us. He said: Mr. Wolff, this is our little Miss Eva. Then Hoffmann sent me out to get some beer and sausages from the corner pub."
3: This solid gold bookmark was given to Hitler by Eva as a symbol for her love. Although she rarely saw Hitler, she loved him passionately and thought of him always, thus prompting her to create this bookmark. | Many believe that Hitler had multiple affairs thanks to tabloid newspapers, thus angering Eva.
4: A letter Adolf Hitler wrote to Eva Braun shortly after the attempt on his life in July 1944: "Mein Liebes Tschapperl, Don't worry about me. I'm fine though perhaps a little tired. I hope to come home soon and then I can rest in your arms. I have a great longing for rest, but my duty to the German people comes before everything else. Don't forget that the dangers I encounter don't compare with those of our soldiers at the Front. I thank you for the proof of your affection and ask you also to thank your esteemed father and your most gracious mother for their greetings and good wishes. I am very proud of the honor - please tell them that - to possess the love of girl who comes from such a distinguished family. I have sent to you the uniform I was wearing during the unfortunate day. It is proof that Providence has protected me and that we have nothing more to fear from our enemies. From my whole heart, your A.H."
5: This letter was Eva's reply: "Geliebter, I am beside myself. I am dying of anxiety now that I know you are in danger. Come back as soon as possible. I feel as if I am going insane. The weather is beautiful here and everything seems so peaceful that I am ashamed of myself ... You know I have always told you that I would die if anything happened to you. From our first meeting on, I have promised myself to follow you wherever you go, even to death. You know that I live only for your love. Yours Eva"
6: Hitler had a custom-made Mercedes-Benz convertible sports car created for his Eva.
7: After Hitler's suicide, his home was raided and within his safe, no valuables were found - only copies of his self-written book "Mein Kampf." -Conceited much?

9: The home away from home for Hitler and Eva.
10: This sketch of Eva was given to Eva by her beloved, Hitler, as a present. | "Fraulein Braun is a young girl," Hitler once said to Linge, "too young to be the wife of one in my position. But she is the only girl for me. So we live as we do. But one day I shall give up the leadership of the Reich. I shall cease to be the Fuhrer and retire to Linz to a house that can be managed by a small staff. Then I will marry Fraulein Braun ..." | Hitler's personal valet, Heinz Linge, later recalled how the staff used to call her the "girl in a gilded cage".
11: February 11, 1935 He came to see me, but nary a sign of a dog or a chest of drawers. He did not even ask me what I wanted for my birthday. So I bought some jewelry for myself. A necklace, earrings, and a matching ring, all for 50 marks. All very pretty, and I hope he likes it. If he doesn't, then he should choose something for me himself. Although Hitler really cared about Eva, he did not show it, and although this upset Eva, she made up for it by trying to please him.
12: After Hitler and Eva commit suicide together, the tabloid papers began claiming that he was NOT dead. There was also confusion about his marriage to Eva considering nobody had ever even heard of her.

14: "February 6, 1935 I think this must be the right day to begin this extra-special diary. I have now reached the happy age of 23. No, happy is not quite the right word. At this particular moment I am certainly not happy. The truth is that I have rather large ideas about the importance to be attached to this day: If I had a dog I would not feel so lonely, but I suppose that is asking for too much. Frau Schaub came as an ambassador bringing flowers and telegrams. The result is that my whole office resembles a flower shop and smells like a cemetery chapel. I suppose I am ungrateful, but I did want to be given a dachshund. And I just don't have one. Perhaps I'll get one next year, or much later, when it will be more appropriate for a budding old maid. What is important is not to give up hope. I should have learned to be patient by now. Today I bought two lottery tickets, because I had a feeling that it would be now or never--they were both blanks. So I am not going to be rich after all. Nothing at all to be done about it. Today I was going to Zugspitze with Herta, Gretel, Ilse, and Mutti, and I should have had a wonderful time, for it is always most enjoyable when other people are enjoying themselves, too. But nothing came of it. This evening I am going to have dinner with Herta. What else can you do, when you are a little single woman of 23? So I shall end my birthday "with gluttony and drunkenness." I think this is what he would want me to do. | A diary entry written by Eva on her birthday. She tells about how she was given a dog for her birthday
15: This is the dog that Hitler gave Eva for her birthday. She was not pleased with it because she was hoping to spend time with him. According to Hitler's chauffeur Erich Kempka Eva Braun was "the unhappiest woman in Germany. She spent most of her time waiting for Hitler."
