Life.com has obtained a set of newly released photos from the personal albums of Eva Braun, Adolf Hitler's longtime girlfriend and, in their final hours, wife.
The photos "reveal new dimensions" of the woman who married Hitler as the Russian army closed in on his Berlin bunker and then committed suicide with him a day later. He was 56. She was 33.
The 30 photos cover almost all of Braun's life, from images of her as a toddler and schoolgirl to her spending time with Hitler at his mountaintop retreat in the Alps.
Among the most interesting images are those of Braun posing seemingly naked behind an umbrella and her made up as American actor Al Jolson in his role in "The Jazz Singer."
The photos come from "a cache of images confiscated by the U.S. Army in 1945 and brought to light by collector and curator Reinhard Schulz," Life.com reports.
I think she's cute
I don't think they died in 1945, I think they got away
i know huh
that comment doesn't even make any sense
Now why would you think that??? What an insensitive and discriminating comment to make!
Tom, what is your problem with this story?
Oh like this is nothing else more important worth covering today?
I like stories like this.
Like Sheen or Lohan?
There is always more important stuff. There is also less important stuff. However, CNN does not serve YOU personally. So what you think is or is not news is really not very relevant.
You read the article and commented on it, so it clearly caught your interest. Unless you read every single thing the publish.
There's always some moron saying 'why is this news'. Get a life. Everything is news. Get over it and come up with something interesting to say.
Yes, I agree. This is news. Everything that happened in the 30s and 40s is news to me.
you are so stupid
LMAO! CLASSIC! I was thinking the saaaaaaaaaame thing! lolol
Wow, their are some uneducated people on here. You can't understand why a story about one-man mass murderer & how it might be relevant to what's going on in the world today? What rock did you people crawl out from under?
This is a person (his wife) that a mass-murder held close. She was in his inner circle. You're not at all curious how this person contributed to the life & actions of Adolf Hitler?? I hope all of you that cannot understand are older, because if you are the next generation...let's just say, I'm glad I'm in my 30's.
