Can anybody confirm that the couple of the photo with Hitler (made at Obersalzberg?) is Helene Bechstein (* 1876 † 1951)and her husband Edwin (* 11. 02.1859 Berlin; † 15.09.1934)?

Here is Hitler with Helene Bechstein at Edwin Bechstein's funeral in 1934. (General Kurt Freiherr von Hammerstein-Equord is at right.) She looks like the same woman to me.

Thanks. Here is another photo of Helene Bechstein made in Bayreuth during the Wagner festival 1930 together with Geli Raubal. This looks also very similar to me.

That photo makes Raubal look extremely plain.
