However, Eva’s father became more adamant than ever against Eva seeing Hitler. He wrote Hitler a letter saying:
My family has been torn apart because both of my daughters have moved into an apartment which you put at their disposal. As head of the family, I am confronted with an accomplished fact. I stand by the old fashioned point of view, in moral respect, that children should not be taken from their parents’ care until they are married.
However, Eva intercepted the letter and tore it up.
You know, maybe you should listen to your parents. They just don’t want you to commit suicide. That’s all.
Hitler started paying more attention to Eva, and she started spending the night in his Munich apartment. They had sleepovers. Her family was very upset that they weren’t married. In an attempt to soothe over any ill feelings they might have, Mr. Braun was sent a gold watch from Hitler and was invited over for a meal.
I can find no information as to whether or not Mr. Braun accepted, but I kind of doubt he did.
