1 The illegitimate daughter of Auguste Behrend, a housemaid, and Oskar Ritschel, a building contractor. She was adopted by her stepfather, Richard Friedländer, a Jewish businessman. Before they married, Magda's first husband, Günther Quandt, demanded that her birth certificate be amended so she was declared legitimate and her "undesirable" surname was expunged. Friedländer died at the notorious Buchenwald concentration camp in 1939. Neither Magda nor her husband Joseph Goebbels intervened.
