ID photo Franz X Schwarz birthday in the Berghof

Post by Helly Angel » 29 Mar 2021 00:08

Hello all,

Here we have a picture of Franz Xaver Schwarz in his birthday in the Berghof, I don´t know the year.

They are since the left to right: first row: Eva Braun, Franz X Schwarz, AH, Bertha Schwarz, ? and ?, second row: Gretl Braun, Sofie Stork, ? , Christa Schroeder, Hanni Morell, unknown woman between lines, ?, Hermann Esser, third row: Albert Bormann, Max Wünsche, ? and Gerda Bormann.

Someone know who are the unknown people?

Thanks!

At the left next to Eva and Albert, is the bust of Dietrich Eckart!

Not sure how helpful this is, but that picture is 27 November 1938. Its that birthday of his. And that is Max Wünsche.

I can’t help but think that the Schwarzes were very friendly folks, with Franz looking like a ordinary “Spiesser” with his round face and bookkeeper’s glasses.
Is there any detailed biography or info about him anywhere?

Could that be Karl Wolff at the right-hand end of the first row? And if that's true, then could the woman to his right be his wife, Frieda?

Just some thoughts on this Vigil of Easter Day,

Isn't that Anni Brandt between Sofie Stork and Christa Schroeder? When I have seen this photo before, I have seen the man standing beside Max Wünsche, identified as Karl Wolff. And somewhere I think I have seen the woman between the lines identified as "Frau Dreesen" (presumably from the Rheinhotel Dreesen).

I registered at this forum to observe other staff, but these photos are super interesting. Might go more deep into it.

Well, Franz Xaver Schwarz. An unknown and forgotten Nazi leader. But in fact he was an important person "in the background" because he organised and managed NSDAP money.
