Who is Eva Braun?

Eva Braun is popularly known in the pages of history as Adolf Hitler’s mistress and later wife. Born in a middle-class family, she took to studying at the Catholic Institute. It was after completing her education that young Braun worked as a sales woman and later as a photographer for Heinrich Hoffman, who was the official photographer of Hitler, the popular Nazi leader. It was while working for Hoffman that Braun was first introduced to Hitler. Though the two shared a romantic relationship that lasted for more than twelve years, the relationship was not known to the public as Hitler never allowed her to be seen with him in public. Furthermore, despite being his love interest, Braun had no political influence on him whatsoever. Regardless of sharing a desolated life, as Hitler was engrossed in his political ambitions, her loyalty for him never flagged, instead, she promised to be by his side even at the time of death.

Childhood & Early Life

Eva Braun was one of the three sister siblings born to Friedrich ‘Fritz’ Braun and Franziska ‘Fanny’ Kronberger in Munich. She was the second girl child of the couple. While her father was a school teacher, her mother worked as a seamstress prior to being a homemaker.

She completed her formal education at the Catholic lyceum before enrolling at the Convent of the English Sisters in Simbach am Inn, a business school, for a year.

After completing her education, she took up work as a shop assistant and sales clerk at the office of Heinrich Hoffmann, the official photographer for the Nazi Party. No sooner, she learned the art of photography - learning the basics of clicking photographs and developing them.

Later Life

She first met Hitler at the Hoffman’s studio in October 1929. The popular Nazi leader was introduced to her as ‘Herr Wolff’.

The death of Hitler’s half-niece with whom he lived in an apartment in Munich drew Hitler towards her. However, in 1932, she tried to kill herself by committing suicide. Luckily, she failed and the incident led Hitler to become more committed towards her.

Meanwhile, things at the professional front also bettered as she was promoted as a photographer for Hoffman. This led her to indulge in travel with Hitler's entourage, as a photographer for the NSDAP. During these travels, she was accompanied by Hoffmann.

In 1935, she, for the second time, attempted suicide by taking in several sleeping pills. The reason behind the move was insufficient time Hitler had for her. She, however, recovered later and started spending time with Hitler at his household at the Berghof near Berchtesgaden whenever he was in residence there.

In 1935, she attended the Nuremberg Rally for the first time as a member of the Hoffman’s staff. Later in her career she worked for Hoffman's art press.

The couple though much in love were not spotted together at public events. Instead, they preferred to remain apart as Hitler believed that his popularity would decrease if he were married. In fact, Germans did not know about the romantic relationship between the two until after the war.

Adhering to the minimal role that women took in the affairs of the state, she too hardly had any political influence on Hitler. The only activities that interested her were sports, shopping and cinema.

Personal Life & Legacy

In 1945, she moved to Berlin from Munich to be with Hitler. The two tied the nuptial knot after the midnight on the night of 28–29 April, in a private civil ceremony within the Führerbunker. Post marriage, she legally became Eva Hitler.

The following day, in the late afternoon, as the two reclined at the study, a gunshot was heard. It was later found that she had bitten into a cyanide capsule and he had shot himself in the right temple with his pistol. The two were burned in the garden behind the Reich Chancellery.

The ashes were secretly buried at the SMERSH compound in Magdeburg, East Germany, along with the bodies of Joseph and Magda Goebbels and their six children

Trivia

The fact that she was a companion and later wife of Adolf Hitler, remained a well-guarded secret until their death.
