[Below: Probably Eva's last letter]

Berlin, April 28, 1945.

Eva Braun in a letter to her sister:

     I must write you these words so that you will not feel sad over our end here in the shelter. It is rather we who are filled with sorrow because it is your life to live on into the chaos that will follow. For myself, I am glad to die here; glad to be at the side of the Fuehrer; foremost of all, glad that the horror now to come is spared me.

     What could life still give me? It has already been perfect. It had already given me its best and its fullest. Why should I go on living? This is the time to die; the right time. With the Fuehrer I have had everything. To die now, beside him, completes my happiness. Live on as well and as happily as you can. Shed no tears nor be regretful over our deaths. It is the perfect and proper ending. None of us would change it now. It is the right end for a German woman.
