"I am so infinitely happy that he loves me so much, and I pray that it will always be like this. It won't be my fault if he ever stops loving me."
"Eva Braun about Hitler"
Eva Braun

Eva Braun (February 6th, 1912 - April 30th, 1945) was Hermann Fegelein's sister-in-law and the longtime companion of Adolf Hitler and, for less than 40 hours, his wife.

Although she lacked her husband's illogical hatred and total disregard for humanity, she stood by him and supported his every decision.

She committed suicide with her husband in the bunker on April 30th, 1945 by taking a cyanide pill.
