Newly released photos of Hitler's wife

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.

    For war buffs, the National Geographic has a "Nazi Scrapbooks From Hell" for a program that is to air and if you find that link, look at the bottom is the series where you'll find the Holocaust Museum collection that expands on what Nat Geo has.

    She was really his mistress, not his wife. They married shortly before killing themselves. Hitler was already married to another woman and thus died a bigamist.

      Hitler was never married until he married Eva shortly before they killed themselves. He may have died many things but a bigamist was most certainly not one of them.

      Eva Braun was as much a victim as Bernie Madoff's wife. She was killed, Madoff's wife retired to Boca. Ironic.

    AIDS has murdered masses of people. Moment of remembrance for friends, moms, dads, sisters, brothers, lovers and strangers who died too soon and condolences to the living among us who loved them. Freddie Mercury, Liberace et al, thanks for the memories.

    Eva Braun was one ugly Bee-yatch. But I guess you'd have to be, to hook up with a winner like Adolf, huh?

      To each his own! Sure glad you are not the world judge of female beauty. She appears rather cute to me. And that's laying the political considerations aside totally. I am sure, had she known what her fate would be, she would never have hooked up with Hitler.

      The photo this article chose is really the worst one of the bunch. Strictly aesthetically speaking, she looks quite pretty in some of them.

      You don't know how amusing it is see your use of ghetto. My understanding, until I moved to Georgia, was that a ghetto was place where Jews were forced to live before many were taken to the concentration or extermination camps. Just food for thought.
