Scientists tested hair samples which are said to have come from a hairbrush used by Braun and discovered at Hitler’s mountain retreat.
They found a particular sequence within the DNA, which had been passed down the maternal line – the haplogroup N1b1 – which it is claimed is ‘strongly associated’ with Ashkenazi Jews, who make up around 80 per cent of the global Jewish population.
Many Ashkenazi Jews in Germany converted to Catholicism in the 19th century.
The test was made for Channel 4 programme Dead Famous DNA, to be shown on Wednesday.

I don't see a problem with this for a couple of reasons:
-Ashkenazi Jews are NOT true Jews in the sense of the Semitic peoples originally from the area of Palestine/Israel/the Levant. They are mostly a Slavic people (ie Poles, Russians, Bulgarians) that came from central and eastern Europe who converted to Judaism in the Middle Ages.
-Hitler, although hated the Jews, actually had some Jewish soldiers fight for him under the Nuremberg Laws:
So what I take away from this, is that at the very least, Eva could have been of Slavic ancestry.
Lest we forget Hitler hated the Slavs just as much.
