LONDON: Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler liked to have bread and marmalade for breakfast and was described as mild-mannered during personal exchanges, according to newly released documents.
Britain’s national archives made public a previously classified account of Hitler provided by a 19-year-old Austrian deserter, who described him as paranoid about being watched by others and short-tempered during meetings.
“He is mild on personal contact but apt to bang tables and shout during conferences,” according to the account given by a prisoner of war identified as SS Schuetze Obernigg. He was said to have been at Hitler’s retreat in Obersalzberg in the Bavarian Alps between 1943 and 1944.
Obernigg provided a detailed description of Hitler’s daily routine at the retreat. Hitler was said to favor waking up at 10 am, breakfasted on coffee, bread and marmalade shortly afterward, and received visitors including his doctor in the afternoon. The accounts show he apparently worked until late in the night.
