The footage and still photos of Gretl Braun swimming are often wrongly identified as being Eva. The sisters were nearly identical so, this is a frequent mistake.
Note: As a student of history and WWII these films are edited and presented as a historical curio and a source of information. No one else that I know of has bothered to identify the people in these silent films as I have. This series is not intended to promote any political view or personal bias. It is simply a historical record captured on film. I am aware that the release of the Braun movies has upset some people as they appear to humanize Hitler. But I believe these films are useful in knocking Hitler down to size, reducing the monumental impersonal image of him to human scale.
