Eva Braun was renowned for her vacations, particularly during the ski season. Here is a rare memento of her trip to the Cortina d’Ampezzo ski resort in northern Italy. I believe this was written during the filming of the German movie Der Laufende Berg – which Eva Braun is known to have attended, and which feature in Reel 6 of her home movies.
We are sitting here, having coffee, after a wonderful trip. Next, we’ll travel on to Venice. Warm greetings, Eva”
The postcard, which was sent to her parents’ house in Munich, is also annotated and signed by her sister, Gretl – along with Hanni Morell, the wife of Hitler’s personal physician, Theodore Morell.
Gretl Braun writes:
“The weather is beautiful, a bit cold, but we are 1224m”
Hanni Morell signs off with “Herzliche Grüße” (best wishes).
It is also signed by one other person – possibly an actor or crew member from the movie – but I have so far been unable to identify the name.
The postcard is undated but would have been around early 1940.
