Women of the Third Reich.
1. Eva Braun: The mystery woman of Hitler’s Third Reich. Wife of Hitler for one day and his mistress for twelve years, Eva Braun died with Hitler on April 30, 1945, in his underground bunker in the Reich Chancellery gardens in Berlin. Eva never became a Nazi Party member and never appeared as a couple with Hitler in public, almost completely unknown until after the war.
2. Magda Goebbels: First Lady of the Third Reich and wife of Nazi Propaganda Minister and Gauleiter of Berlin, Joseph Goebbels. Recipient of the Golden Party Badge and the Cross of Honor of the German Mother.
3. Paula Hitler: Younger sister of the German Führer and the fifth and last child of Alios and Klara Hitler. When the war ended she was interviewed by US Intelligence officers in May, 1945. Reluctant to talk she said tearfully, "Please remember, he was my brother". She lived under the name of Frau Wolf (Hitler’s nickname) a name he asked her to adopt after the Anschluss with Austria in 1938. After the war, it was discovered that she was once engaged to an Austrian, Dr. Erwin Jekelius, one of the Third Reich’s euthanasia doctors, but when he approached Hitler for permission to marry he was promptly arrested and sent to the Russian front where he was reportedly killed.
4. Hanna Reitsch: Germany’s leading woman stunt pilot and later in 1937, chief test pilot for the Luftwaffe. She worshipped Hitler and the Nazi ideology and became the only woman to win the Iron Cross (First and Second class). Hanna Reitsch spent three days in the Bunker just before Hitler’s suicide on April 28, then flew out with the newly appointed Chief of the Luftwaffe, General Robert Ritter von Greim, whose orders were to mount a bombing attack on the Russian forces who were now approaching the Chancellery and the Führerbunker.
5. Leni Riefenstahl: Appointed by Hitler to produce films for the Nazi Party such as ‘The Triumph of the Will’ and her masterpiece ‘Olympia’, the famous documentary of the 1936 Olympic Games held in Berlin. She has always insisted that she was never a member of the Nazi party but neither was she an opponent of Hitler.
