ONLINE TALK BY MELANIE GIBSON-BARTON: THE LIFE OF EVA BRAUN

You may remember Melanie gave us an excellent Talk about Edith Cavell in May last year

Melanie will present the story of the woman who devoted her life to Hitler.  The material of the talk is sensitively presented in order to appeal to a wide audience.  It will convey the life story of the girl who met Adolf Hitler in a shop during the years leading up to his rise to power in Germany.

Melanie’s interest in Eva began after seeing Eva alongside Hitler in cine-film on ‘The World at War’ television programme in 1973.  While listening to the talk you can consider whether you think Eva was a victim or a contriver in her story.

The online talk will take place via Zoom so you will be able to enjoy the talk on your computer/laptop/tablet/mobile phone. The Talk will cost £2 per household. You can pay online using the buttons below (coming soon) or the link; or phone to book a place and arrange collection of payment.

Payment is non-refundable in the case of non attendance.
