These Pictures of Adolf Hitler with Helga Goebbels, His Favorite Little Girl, Show Another Side of the Fuhrer

Helga was the oldest of Goebbels’ six children and she was always said to be Hitler’s favorite little girl.

Kathe Hubner, who worked for the Goebbels family for the last two years of the Second World War, refuses to comment on this, saying only that it is a question which journalists have always pestered her with – she always refused to answer their questions – and that Hitler was friendly to all children.

Whatever Hitler felt about Helga, her feelings about him are evident in these photographs from the 1930s.

Helga was 12 years old when she died. She was murdered by her parents in Berlin on 1 May 1945, the day both parents committed suicide. Bruises found on her body postmortem (mostly on her face) led to wide speculation that she had struggled against receiving a cyanide capsule, which was used to kill her by crushing it between her teeth.
