New photos making the rounds on social media, showing what is purportedly Adolf Hitler’s mistress, have caused a stir.
These are the new photos causing a buzz online.
The photos show the naked figure of a woman believed to be Adolf Hitler’s lover Eva Braun.
The revealing pictures, showing a nude woman flaunt her curves for the camera drenched in sunlight, were taken from the time Braun would have been seeing the Nazi dictator.
In other pictures, the woman is seen wading into a lake totally starkers and in many other seductive poses.
According to Daily Star UK, the collector, known only as Bernard S, is certain that the woman in the photos is none other than Eva Braun.
He said: “I studied all pictures of Eva Braun that I could find. You can clearly see that it is her.”
Antiques dealer Stefan Kreuzmayr, who sold Bernard the pictures, claims a renowned military historian, who died in February, identified Braun from the pictures.
He said: “A woman came into my shop nine years ago. She had a whole box of pictures with her from an estate.
“She had found the stuff in her attic and thought that, in two images, Eva Braun was pictured.”
Mr Kreuzmayr added that he didn’t notice the faint writing spelling the name of Eva Braun on the reverse of one of the photos, and would not have sold them if he had.
In August 1943, when the pictures were taken, Eva was almost exclusively living at the Berghof summer home of her evil lover.
The Russian city of Stalingrad had already fallen by then and Hitler was mostly living at hís military high command HQ in Rastenburg, East Prussia – known as the Wolf’s Lair.
But Heike Görtemaker, a biographer of Braun, doesn’t believe she would have posed for the pictures at a time when Germany was in mourning for the destroyed Sixth Army at Stalingrad.
She said: “It’s very, very unlikely that she can pose alone like this in front of a photographer – I do not think it is her.”
Braun remained unknown to the German people during the 12 year lifespan of the Third Reich as Hitler wanted to maintain the myth of being “married” to the German people.
But on April 30, 1945, in Hitler’s squalid bunker beneath the Reich Chancellery, he married her, before they both committed suicide hours later.
