The Worst Honeymoon Ever

Sunday, May 12th, 2019

Eva Braun was a pretty, fun-loving, photographer’s assistant. For years she was also the loyal lover of Adolf Hitler and her lifelong dream was to marry der Fuhrer.  For many years Hitler claimed to be “married to Germany” and said if he married, he would “crush the dreams of millions of German girls.”  It seems power IS the ultimate aphrodisiac – and a creator of delusions.

In April 1945, Braun, 33, travelled to Hitler’s bunker in Berlin. Shortly after midnight on the 29th, Eva got her wish. They were married in a small civil ceremony as the Red Army rained a storm of bombs on the city.  When she signed the marriage certificate, Eva started to write her last name ‘Braun’ but quickly crossed it out and wrote ‘Hitler.’

Early that morning, the Hitlers hosted a wedding breakfast for their immediate inner circle of staff and friends and said their farewells.  Within an hour, they both killed themselves. Hitler with a gunshot to the head – Eva with a cyanide capsule.

Their marriage lasted less than one day.
