This photo of Adolf Hitler was, according to Gretl Braun, the favorite photo of Eva Braun. The only place I have ever seen this photo is in the 1979 book entitled, Hitler et Eva Braun, by JM Charlier and J. de Launay. It’s a French language book which contains a brief interview with the sister of Eva Braun.

Gretl Braun said in 1979, “this is the best representation of the famous ‘icy stare’ of Adolf Hitler. My sister loved this photo particularly, and I myself esteemed it as a good view of what experiencing Hitler was really like." 

When asked, "Was this your sister’s favorite photo of Hitler?” Gretl responded, “I would say it was. She was very, very fond of this one. It was what he really looked like.”
