SS General HERMANN FEGELEIN

Does anyone have any information on HERMANN FEGELEIN's son. I read in a book that his wife gave birth shortly after they got married?

Fegelein and Greta Braun did not have a son - they had a daughter (named Eva) born 5 May 1945. I do not know what happened to them after the war.

On a strange note, I did a "Google" search and found that a Neo-Nazi website and a Jewish Holocaust memorial website had both lifted exactly the same text (presumably from a third source) to describe Fegelein...

Don't know about her mother, but it's mentioned in a footnote on page 189 of James P. O'Donnell's The Bunker (paperback edition) that Eva Fegelein died a suicide in 1975 following an unhappy love affair. Her aunt--the soon-to-be Frau Hitler, for whom she was named--was quoted by Hitler's pilot, Hans Baur, as hoping Greta's child would be a boy because "the Braun girls were born into this world under an unlucky star".

Sadly, they must've been.

Yours,
Paul
