This site gives a short, yet thorough, biography of Eva Braun. It lists the
facts plainly and does it chronologically, unlike many of the other sources.
This site is originally in German and I had it translated into English.
It offers a brief timeline of Magda’s life and marriage to Goebbels.
Some of the translations seem awkward and would probably be better
to read it in its original German.
For a more in depth site that focuses mainly on Goebbels and his
marriage to Magda. It is still relatively brief but gives a good insight
into the intricate troubles of their marriage and Goebbels many love
This site offers a brief paragraph on Magda as well as the other
prominent women in Hitler’s life such as Eva Braun, Winifred Wagner,
and Leni Riefenstahl.

also provides information on other female guards.

the statistical information of approximately how many prisoners were killed a
day and were held in the camp at a given time.

details of the camp's history and gives pictures and maps.

prisoners and the background of the camp's commandant, Josef Kramer.
