    Fantastic material! George, Thanks!



    Jewish woman from Warsaw ghetto captured by Germans. I'm not too good in reading gothic and cannot decipher her name.
    I can only guess that there is a sad story after this photo was taken.

    Thanks Lancer


    You know I was thinking of posting Jewish women from WWII. Nice pic above.
    No doubt you are correct about her fate. Very sad.

    In regards of the Eva Braun pics posted by George Eller, in the last pic the girl that is with Hitler is not Eva Braun but Maria Reiter, who was his lover before Eva.

    Hi Ingsoc,

    Are you sure? According to the caption for that photo it was taken on Hitler's 50th birthday 1939. Eva Braun was already involved with him by that time.

    It's a very common mistake to identify her as Eva Braun, see in this link - http://www.thirdreichruins.com/berghofvisitors.htm

    Here another picture of her with Hitler



    As you can see she looks nothing like Eva Braun

    Paula Hitler fit very nicely into our thread and I hope you also will be interested in reading interview with her.
    Her brother Adolf forced her to change name to Paula Wolf.









    Born in 1896 in Hartfeld, Austria, younger sister of the German Führer and the fifth and last child of Alios and Klara Hitler. At one time she worked as a secretary for a group of doctors in a military hospital but kept her identity a secret. When she would see a small chapel when traveling in the mountains, she would go in and say a silent prayer for her brother. Each year Hitler would send her a ticket to the impressive Nuremberg Rally. In March, 1941, Hitler was staying at the Imperial Hotel in Vienna and it was here that Paula met him for the last time. It was always her opinion that it was a pity her brother had not become the architect he always wanted to be. Paula was seven years younger than her brother, but he never mentioned her in his writings because of his embarrassment at her weak mental state.
    Until the last weeks of the war, Paula Hitler lived in Vienna where she worked in an arts and craft shop and when the war ended 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. Paula lived unmarried in a two bedroom flat near Berchtesgaden, her main interest being the Catholic Church. She died on June 1, 1960 without ever being invited to the Berghof. Her grave is in the Bergfriedhof in Berchtesgaden.

    Edited to add text

    Cheers,

    Hi Ingsoc,

    Thanks - I checked the link above and this is the caption:


    The laughing lady in the photo on the right, seen with Hitler in the Mooslahnerkopf Teehaus, is sometimes labeled as Herta Schneider, and sometimes even as Eva Braun, but she doesn't look like either one to me; one source has identified her as the wife of Albert Forster, Gauleiter of Danzig. (NA RG 242-EB and 242-2512)

    NOTE: Thanks to André van Deun and Rick Hader for identifying the woman on the right as Maria "Mitzi" Reiter, one of Hitler's early romantic interests.


    By the way - excellent link for Eva Braun photographs. Thanks.
