Last letters of Eva Braun

Last letters of Eva Braun

Last letters of Eva Braun were typed just days before they suicide. In fact, the letters were intended for Eva Braun’s friend Herta Schneider. For example, in one letter, dated April 19, 1945, she writes that, “despite the thud of artillery and falling bombs”, she is “happy to be close” to Hitler and remains “convinced that everything will turn out all right”. But three days later her mood changed from fragile hope to black despair, as the Red Army smashed into the suburbs of Berlin in April 1945. The discovered letters reveal Hitler’s bride-to-be Eva Braun growing sense of doom. “We are fighting until the last but I’m afraid the end is threatening closer and closer’. She also writes of preparing to die and her bewilderment at how God could let such things happen. In the second letter Braun says: ‘Greetings to all my friends, I’m dying how I’ve lived. It’s not difficult for me. You know that.’ Eight days later, 33-year-old Braun was dead, killing herself alongside her husband of only a few hours, Adolf Hitler.
