Below is a letter from Adolf Hitler to Eva after the 1944 assassination attempt. It is a revealing letter showing their deep love and friendship for one another.

'Mein Liebes Tschapperl,
Don’t worry about me. I’m fine though perhaps a little tired.
I hope to come home soon and then I can rest in your arms.
I have a great longing for rest, but my duty to the German people comes before everything else.
Don't forget that the dangers I encounter don't compare with those of our soldiers at the Front.
I thank you for the proof of your affection and ask you also to thank your esteemed father and your most gracious mother for their greetings and good wishes.
I am very proud of the honor - please tell them that - to possess the love of a girl who comes from such a distinguished family.
I have sent to you the uniform I was wearing during the unfortunate day.
It is proof that Providence has protected me and we have nothing more to fear from our enemies.
From my whole heart,
Your A.H.'

Eva's reply to his letter:

Geliebter,
I am beside myself.
I am dying of anxiety now that I know you are in danger.
Come back as soon as possible.
I feel as if I am going insane.
The weather is beautiful here and everything seems so peaceful that I am ashamed of myself…
You know I have always told you that I would die if anything happened to you.
From our first meeting on, I have promised myself to follow you wherever you go, even to death.
You know I live only for your love.
Yours,
Eva.
