Annotations by Geoffrey R. Walden (copyright).


Notes:  Times (in hours:minutes:seconds) refer to running times on the 3-DVD set - the one that reproduces the entire film set in the National Archives (see below). The times are approximate, and will not match all DVD sets, due to different production methods and different DVD timers.

As assembled from the separate film spools found in 1945, the reels as they exist today are extremely jumbled – films from the same day appear on several different reels. Additionally, the set contains a film that was not one of Eva Braun’s (10 minutes at the beginning of Reel 4). Most of the black and white footage taken by Eva Braun and her friends appears to date from the war years, most of the color footage being from the late 1930s.

Many of the people in these films were Eva Braun’s family and friends – not Nazi notables, so difficult to identify today. Eva Braun and her sister Margarete (Gretl) can sometimes be difficult to tell apart in these films, as they often looked very similar to each other. When they appear together they can be told apart, but when they appear separately, it can be sometimes difficult to say with certainty which it is. For still photos and identification of personnel, see . An identification of names is at the bottom of this page. For further identification of locations see and subpages.

NOTE:  The DVDs are NOT available from the National Archives, nor do I have any copies for sale, but several eBay dealers sell these. There are several different DVDs of "Eva Braun's Movies" - the complete set runs over five hours (some DVD sets do not contain the entire film set).


My guide book to Third Reich sites in the Berchtesgaden and Obersalzberg area has been published by Fonthill Media.
"Hitler's Berchtesgaden" is available at Amazon and other retailers ( the Kindle version is also available from Amazon).
