Si l’on en croit les images et movies de l’époque, on ne peut que constater qu’Hitler semblait apprécier l. a. compagnie de jeunes et jolies femmes, et qu’une partie des femmes allemandes faisaient preuve d’un fervent enthousiasme à chacune de ses apparitions. On sait aussi qu’à los angeles toute fin de sa vie il épousa une certaine Eva Braun. Mais cela suffit-il à faire de lui un homme aimant les femmes ? Nous verrons que los angeles réalité n’est pas aussi claire, même pour Eva Braun, quant à l’existence d’un éventuel trade charnel avec une femme. Nous irons voir ce qu’il fut dit ou écrit sur los angeles plupart des femmes ou jeunes filles qui furent un jour ou l’autre promues au titre de « maîtresses » ou compagnes potentielles de celui qu’on présenta comme le mari de toutes les Allemandes.
En l’absence de preuve formelle d’une activité hétérosexuelle, il était tout naturel que l’idée d’un Hitler homosexuel fasse son chemin. Nous passerons en revue les principaux éléments qui permirent à certains de soutenir qu’Hitler aurait aujourd’hui plutôt trouvé sa position sur un char lors d’une homosexual Pride.
