    Hi Jan,

    Inge Ley commited suicide at approximately 18.40 on the 29th of December 1942 by means of a single pistol shot to the head. Apparently, her husband was just leaving the house with his adjutant when the shot rang out. The adjutant ran up the stairs to the bedroom closely followed by Ley and the housekeeper. Inge was half lying on the bed with a pistol by her side, a GSW to her right temple, she was 29 years old.

    She was suffering from post natal depression following the birth of her 3rd child which was not without complications, and caused her to become drug dependent. She was also, as was her husband, a known heavy drinker, and they often fought. It has been opined that she had previously attempted suicide a few months before by jumping from a window, but this has never been proven.

    Inge Ley was often portrayed as a vacuous bimbo, but she did sterling work nursing wounded soldiers from the start of the war. Hitler was said to be very shocked and upset by her death, but i understand he did not attend her funeral.

    Regards, Ned.

    Inge Ley was certainly a good looking woman. Here is a photo of another one Lotte Frey with her husband Albert Frey , SS Standartenfuhrer and Oakleaves winner with SS Panzer Gren Regt 1 , LSSAH.

    Both survived the war until Lotte was very ill in 2003 , Albert shot her then himself.

    She is a looker! Shame they all came to violent ends! I suppose that goes with being a WAG of high ranking Nazis
