Hitler's WomenEva Braun - The Girlfriend (eps. 1)

When she meets Adolf Hitler, Eva Braun is seventeen years old. She becomes the woman at his side. „The Führer has no private life,“ is the official propaganda. Eva Braun’s official role is that of his private secretary, and she is paid a salary from Nazi Party funds. At his private residence in Berchtesgaden, the members of Hitler’s retinue are well aware that she lives with him. They make a strange couple, the austere dictator and the naïve courtesan. Eva Braun attempts to take her own life on two occasions, desperate not because of her lover’s atrocities but because he doesn’t phone her often enough. She shares her life with a mass murderer without displaying any doubts, without asking any questions, without even wanting to know the truth. In Hitler’s bunker below the streets of Berlin, on 28th April 1945, Herr Adolf Hitler and Frau Eva Braun are married. The following day Hitler and Eva Braun commit suicide.
