During the night of April 28-29, Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun marry, only hours before they both committed suicide. Braun met Hitler while employed as an assistant to Hitler's official photographer.

Of a middle-class Catholic background, Braun spent her time with Hitler out of public view, entertaining herself by skiing and swimming. She had no discernible influence on Hitler's political career but provided certain domesticity to the life of the dictator. Loyal to the end, she refused to leave the Berlin bunker buried beneath the chancellery as the Russians closed in.
