One evening after Hitler had retired, Max Schmeling, Speer, Goebbels and Ilse Braun settled down to a game of cards; some of them were smoking. On the Führer’s unexpected reappearance, the cigarettes vanished. Ilse Braun dropped hers, still burning, into an ashtray and sat on it. This did not go unnoticed by Hitler who went and stood beside her and asked her to explain in detail the rules of the game they were playing. Then he left. The next morning Eva Braun asked her sister “how the blisters on her bum” were getting on.
as told to Werner Maser by Ilse Braun in Hitler: Legend, Myth & Reality.
