I am blown away looking at this. I'd also have to put my "vote" in for Inge Ley (?) as the loveliest, with Eichmann's wife following at a close second. What I cannot understand is how such apparently attractive, normal looking people can be responsible for such utter brutality. I am also of the opinion that what they did to so many of their children--not just the ones killed by parents, but the ones turned into fanatics and killers--is atrocious.

I cannot understand, why people can't have pride in themselves without tearing others down.

Films of home life of Brigitte Frank on USHMM.
Second film of Brigitte in hospital with her newborn baby. These films are somewhat haunting in light of what was going on and what was to come. Brigitte appears to be a loving mum despite her cold reputation:
