Hitler showed only intermittent interest in Eva and she made two suicide
attempts in August 1932 and in May 1935.
"Hitler kept his Eva like a puppet in a doll's house. She was a part of the ambience, like the canary cage, the rubber tree ... and the kitschy wooden clocks."
The role played by Eva Braun was one of the most successfully guarded
secrets of the Third Reich. She was carefully kept out of the public eye
for all those years and few Germans even knew of her
Hitler's servant for many years, Heinz Linge, later recalled:
and Eva occasionally stayed on alone in his study talking for a short
while before retiring. On those occasions Eva, generally wearing only a
dressing gown, would have some wine and Hitler a cup of tea ... For those
of us who knew of Hitler's relationship with Eva from personal observation
the motto was: see nothing, hear nothing, say nothing."
