Wife & daughter of Hans H. Lammers - Suicide?

Post by Michael Miller » 23 Jan 2007 21:31

This article- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hans_Lammers - states the following:

Lammers' wife committed suicide near Obersalzberg (the site of Hitler's mountain retreat) in early May 1945, as did his daughter two days later.


Any truth to this, or additional details?

With thanks in advance,
~ Mike

Hello Mike,

I once read in a book a couple of years ago that the suicides did take place because they were so distrought over being raped by liberating French soldiers.

in 22Apr1945, Hitler ordered Lammers prison due to "Crime of High Treason" ; sometimes I wonder if Hitler had sure about this "crime"... :(

In my opinion, Frau Lammers is very much alike with Frau Rommel...

One of his daughters bears a resemblance to Eva Braun

Hans Heinrich had two daughters - Vera (3 Aug 1914) and Ilse (28 May 1918)...she didn't commit suicide in 1945, possibly because she didn't retreat to Stangass with the others, so I wonder if anybody knows of her fate...Ilse had an affair in the 1930s with James Montgomery Flagg - an American illustrator, who described her as a complex and unhappy woman...also, does anyone know how Hans died in Dusseldorf in 1962 - apart from being 82 years old...

Yep, that image is of Ilse...James Flagg created the famous US Army recruiting poster during WW1 - it is thought that he modeled the face of "Uncle Sam" upon himself...Vera, the elder Lammers daughter, seems to have survived the Stangass incident during the allied occupation by two different US Army units (7th Regiment, 3rd Infantry Division and the 506th Regiment, 101st Airborne Division) along with the 501 RCC, 2nd French Armored Division...Vera is the one I wondered what happened to her...Hans Heinrich lived on until January 1962 and his is another fate whose details I would like to know...MRJF
