Eva Braun, known as Hitler’s long-term companion, is a central figure in the episode. However, the episode also uncovers other women in Hitler’s life, including those with familial relations, painting a dark picture of his private life.

“Hitler’s Lovers” contributes to the broader narrative of Hitler’s Handmaidens, which challenges the traditional portrayal of women in Nazi Germany as passive bystanders. Instead, it highlights their active and often sinister roles in enabling Hitler’s war efforts and the Holocaust.
