Christian Brod, (1917 in Oranienburg – 2012 in Berlin) was a German painter whose play a role was discovered by his cousin Otto Brod in 2012. In Christian Brod’s Berlin apartment a number of documents were found which avowed that the performer was united with several members of the Nazi Party, including Adolf Hitler. Portraits of Heinrich Himmler, Gerd von Rundstedt and Albrecht Mertz von Quirnheim were found by cousin Otto Brod.

Not registered in the database of the Reichskulturkammer, Christian Brod remains a secrecy to art historians. However, Adolf Hitler’s signature on Christian Brod’s invoice, is proven to be authentic.

From November 2012 until April 2013 several Dutch news media covered the Christian Brod art show, which caused some disturbance, held in Amersfoort, The Netherlands, initiated by gallery owner, photographer and curator Ron Jagers.

Apart from the raid scenes Christian Brod painted, a few diplomatic cartoons were discovered as without difficulty as a painting behind the depiction of a naked Eva Braun, dated 1943. Research has proven that the paint used in making this portrait was made by IG Farben, a German company that stopped producing paint after World War II.
