About this Quote

In this quote, Eva Braun, the long time buddy of Adolf Hitler, assesses her present age of 23. She at first mentions that she has reached a "delighted" age, but then quickly pulls back that declaration, suggesting that she is not truly happy in this minute. This could be interpreted as a reflection of her troubled relationship with Hitler and the constant turmoil and danger that surrounded them. Regardless of her young age, Eva Braun seems to have actually currently experienced a great deal of misery and unpredictability. This quote provides a glimpse into the complex emotions and inner chaos of a woman who was typically eclipsed by her notorious partner.
