Hitler and Eva at the Berghof. Hitler seems intent on speaking to Anni Brandt, but Eva wears his favorite sleeveless black dress.

 As Speer wrote about these evenings: “We found places on the sofa or on the easy chairs…everyone talked in low voices. Hitler murmured trivialities with the two women at his side, or whispered with Eva; sometimes he held her hand… I could only wonder at the way Hitler and Eva avoided anything that might suggest an intimate relationship – only to go upstairs to the bedroom together late at night.” (Speer, Inside the Third Reich, pgs 49 and 101)
