I found a picture of Adele Streicher, Julius's second wife on Ulstein Bild, but it won't link!

Does anyone know what became of Gertrud Deetz, the wife of Gauleiter Albert Forster? Is she still alive?

I could never understand how anyone could say Göring wasn't Edda's real father. She's the spitting image of him!

Thanks! According to Joseph Persico's Nuremberg book, she was arrested for her own anti-Semitic remarks during the trial!

I find this thing:

September 2, 1946 Nuremberg Tribunal: As the defendants await the court's judgement, Colonel Andrus somewhat relaxes the conditions of confinement, allowing those prisoners with wives or children limited visiting. Frau Adele Streicher, still housed in the prison, will visit almost daily until the 28th.

It's so sad that in the end they were poisoned to death by their parents. I heard that Magda had it done becouse her husband Joseph Goebbles was going down in the history books as the greatest criminal of modern times and their children would have had to live with that. Who the hell really knows! It was just a nasty and unfair end to those beautiful and innocent little children.

It's been recorded that Magda herself gave the reason for killing the children in a hand-written statement to Harald Quandt, her eldest son from a prior marriage:

My beloved son! By now we have been in the Führerbunker for six days already — daddy, your six little siblings and I, for the sake of giving our national socialistic lives the only possible honorable end ... You shall know that I stayed here against daddy's will, and that even on last Sunday the Führer wanted to help me to get out. You know your mother — we have the same blood, for me there was no wavering. Our glorious idea is ruined and with it everything beautiful and marvelous that I have known in my life. The world that comes after the Führer and national socialism is not any longer worth living in and therefore I took the children with me, for they are too good for the life that would follow, and a merciful God will understand me when I will give them the salvation ... The children are wonderful ... there never is a word of complaint nor crying. The impacts are shaking the bunker. The elder kids cover the younger ones, their presence is a blessing and they are making the Führer smile once in a while. May God help that I have the strength to perform the last and hardest. We only have one goal left: loyalty to the Führer even in death. Harald, my dear son — I want to give you what I learned in life: be loyal! Loyal to yourself, loyal to the people and loyal to your country ... Be proud of us and try to keep us in dear memory ...

Magda's choice of words is very telling: " The world that comes after the Führer and national socialism is not any longer worth living in..." It sounds very similar to the Nazi logic for depopulating the asylums: lives not worth living.

Great find Freddiefro. I've never seen photos of the couple together. I think the only ones I've seen of her are those taken of her at the Berghof (having tea time with Hitler). By the uniforms, anyone know what year? I'm thinking either '34 or '35. Hess is donning his SS uniform too.
