There was something different about Geli Raubal.
“I was walking down the street and I heard her singing,” a friend, Frau Braun, would later recall.
“I saw her and I just stopped dead. She was just so tall and beautiful and I said nothing. And she saw me standing there and said ‘Are you frightened of me?’ and I said, ‘No, I was just admiring you…'”
She was described as an “unusual beauty” and oddly enchanting; a young woman with a natural charm, who aspired to be a singer one day.
When Geli, which was short for Angela, turned 17, her mother became the housekeeper of her half-brother, a man named Adolf Hitler.
