Here we see Hitler with Inga and Robert Ley on the patio of the Berghof:

The truth is that you're a quiet, sensitive type, but if I'm prepared to take a chance I might just get to know the inner you: witty, adventurous, passionate, loving, loyal, a little bit crazy, a little bit bad, but, hey, don't us girls just love that?

Thanks. Do you have a link to the topic, I would be interested in learning more about when the photo was taken. I'm sure there are also a few others of the delightful Frau Ley on the forum which I haven't seen yet.

Kind regards.

It was a set of various Hoffmann photos posted last year, but for some reasons Mark had to stop the posting these photos on AHF. Afterward all his threads were deleted by moderators on his request I guess.

According to Richard J. Evans in his book "The Third Reich in Power 1933-1939" - Inga shot herself after a "drunken brawl" with her husband.

Kind regards.

Thanks for posting that picture "goofy". (I hadn't seen that one before) Bohle's wife looks attractive. Inga and Robert both are drinking champagne (or wine)...perhaps she's slightly tipsy on the booze (maybe she took a "downer" pill before the dinner/gala)...I've read in many accounts that she was an alcoholic and a pill popper. Robert was certainly an alcoholic who almost killed the Windsors when driving drunk. Please post more photos when you find them. Thanks again. (Duncan)

Great photos, goofy! Thanks for posting them.

Still my favorite color photo of Inga Ley, though it's not as clear as some of the others. Originally posted on the Forum at http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... 64#p813364 and http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... 45#p498645:

The photo by Michal above showing the Leys with Hitler and Wagner appears to have been taken on one of the "Strength Through Joy" cruiseships, although they are dressed for colder conditions so it may not be.

The man in the center of the picture (behind Ley) bears an uncanny resemblance to the actor "Larry Hovis" that played as "Carter" on the old sitcom Hogans Heroes.

Is there a shot of that famous painting of her anywhere to be found?

Are you referring to the painting that features Inga Ley in the nude? I'd like to see it too but I doubt it exists. Perhaps there is some myth about the painting (that it ever even existed). Some of the early accounts of Nazi Party bigwigs feature much sensationalism and exaggeration. Some of these early accounts also report a drunken Robert Ley tearing the clothes off her back in front of guests and before the painting to show people how close to life the artist had depicted her. i don't know. I have trouble believing some of this early stuff....it's the same kind of crap featured in books like "I Was Hitler's Doctor" by kurt Kruger or "I Was Hitler's Housekeeper" by Pauline Kohler.

A nude painting of a Nazi wife? In conservative Nazi Germany? Hard to believe. :roll:

BTW, I'm new here. :D

Welcome! :D

And "conservatism" in Nazi Germany was subjective...if you don't believe me, look at the way Göring would "dress up" in his opulent finery to meet-and-greet dignitaries! 8O

Or, Julius Striecher's porn collection! 8O
