Who was the housemaid of Hitler ?

Post by DavidFrankenberg » 28 May 2021 15:13

For example, at the Berghof ? In Berlin ?

I know that the valet chief was Brückner then Linge, men. Many men were valet for Hitler. The helped him to dress, etc. But i guess they didnt make the bed or wash the laundry. I guess it was a woman's job.

I wonder who were those housemaids who cleaned and made the bed for Hitler every day ?

Thanks.

One of them was Elisabeth Kalhammer. He had 22 housemaids at Berghof.

But I don't know if it is reliable.

Anna Plaim, Elfriede König and Resi Stangassinger, was mainly responsible for cleaning the guest rooms of the Berghof and the private rooms of Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun

Hi DavidFrankenberg,

There is a 2016 interview with one of his housemaids on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yt8OSNz0tBo

Anna Plaim’s account of her work at the Berghof is in this book (Living with Hitler). It’s a good read
