Eva Braun, the woman who had sex with that guy who arrested an estimated 100,000 gays and helped nearly 10,000 to their deaths (while castrating and experimenting on them), appears in this 1937 blackface photo captioned “Me as Al Jolson,” a nod to The Jazz Singer‘s white actor who regularly appeared in blackface.
