17 Strange Facts About Hitler

The following is an article from Uncle John's Supremely Satisfying Bathroom Reader

There's nothing funny about Hitler, but he is endlessly fascinating. Since Congress passed the Nazi War Crimes Disclosure Act in 1998, almost 3 million classified files have been opened to the public - including a 1942 secret profile of Adolf Hitler compiled by the OSS. Here are some excerpts.


• Hitler never allows anyone to see him while he is naked or bathing. He refuses to use cologne or scents of any sort on his body

• No matter how warm he feels, Hitler will never take off his coat in public

• In 1923, Nazi press secretary Dr. Sedgwick tried to convince Hitler to get rid of his trademark mustache or grow it normally. Hitler answered: "Do not worry about my mustache. If it is not the fashion now, it will be later because I wear it!"


• While dining with the others, Hitler will allow the conversation to linger on general topics, but after a couple of hours he will inevitably begin one of his many monologues. These speeches are flawless from start to finish because he rehearses them any time he gets a moment.

• His favorite topics include: "When I was a soldier," "When I was in Vienna," "When I was in prison," and "When I was the leader in the early days of the party."

• If Hitler begins speaking about Wagner and the opera, no one dares interrupt him. He will often sermonize on this topic until his audience falls asleep.


• Hitler has no interest in sports or games of any kind and never exercised, except for an occasional walk.

• He paces frequently inside rooms, always to the same tune that he whistles to himself and always diagonally across the room, from corner to corner

• Hitler's handwriting is impeccable. When famous psychologist Carl Jung saw Hitler's handwriting in 1937, he remarked: "Behind this handwriting I recognize the typical characteristics of a man with essentially feminine instinct."


• Hitler loves the circus. He takes real pleasure in the idea that underpaid performers are risking their lives to please him. • He went to the circus on several occasions in 1933 and sent extremely expensive chocolates and flowers to the female performers. Hitler even remembered their names and would worry about them and their families in the event of an accident.

• He isn't interested in wild animal acts, unless there is a woman in danger

• Nearly every night Hitler will see a movie in his private theatre, mainly foreign films that are banned to the German public. He loves comedies and will often laugh merrily at Jewish comedians. Hitler even liked a few Jewish singers, but after hearing them he would remark that it was too bad he or she wasn't Aryan.

• Hitler staff secretly made films for him of torture and execution of political prisoners, which he very much enjoyed viewing. His executive assistants also secured pornographic pictures and movies for him.

• He loves newsreels - especially when he is in them. • He adores gypsy music, Wagner's operas, and especially American college football marches and alma maters.

• To excite the masses, he also uses American College football-style music during his speeches. His rallying cry - "Sieg Heil!" - was even modeled after the cheering techniques used by American football cheerleaders.

Years ago, while browsing boxes of photos and documents at the National Archives, I came across a train ticket from a whistlestop tour that I believe Hitler made before the war. Whoever's ticket it was managed to get it signed by him. It's a very creepy feeling to hold something in your hand, even with a cotton glove on, that Hitler likely touched or held.

Man, I've been comparing football in America to fascism and '1984' for years. It's kinda disturbing to find out he was copying us the whole time. Go Gamecocks?

seems that references might helpt support some of those anecdotes, such as the one about him enjoying execution and porno films...

hitler was a vegetarian, which he felt helped his digestion (he suffered from digestion problems up until he adopted vegetarianism).

the nazis did invent methamphetamines -- they were designed as a "pep pill" for troops. hitler's doctor administered daily shots of speed towards the end of the war.

"Hitler has no interest in sports or games of any kind and never exercised, except for an occasional walk."
He went for a walk for about an hour every afternoon, (as his bodyguard tells it) so your fact is false. He also won a medal in the First World War, that probably also required some sort of exercise.
He never got up before midday is a true fact, and stayed up incredibly late instead.

Bob, you are an imbecile. You imply that America is a breeding ground for genocidal psychopaths. Take you r head out of you butt and move to North Korea or Zimbabwe so they can firmly ensconce it there again once and for all.

That should read: Bob, you are an imbecile. You imply that America is a breeding ground for genocidal psychopaths. Take your head out of your butt and move to North Korea or Zimbabwe so they can firmly ensconce it there again once and for all. Sorry for the typos.

The Nazis did not invent methamphetamines. The Japanese did...., FYI. They began using them in WWII for the Kamikaze pilots, and then the Europeans got ahold of them.

Portions of this profile by the OSS were directly copied from a previously issued report by the British. It was compiled at the behest of the Prime Minister, Winston Churchill. That report was supposedly compiled by psychiatrist using information about Hitler to develop a psychiatric profile. It included references to deviant sexual behavior and all manor of insulting characteristics. It was then leaked so that Hitler would get wind of it. He was quite enraged, which was the intent of Churchill. If you can distract your enemy and get him to react on a personal level, it is an advantage. This is the report that gave rise to the belief that Hitler chewed on the carpet when things were not going his way. Many misconceptions about Hitler were perpetuated by this report. When you consider that Hitler did not consume alcohol or smoke and, that he was a vegetarian it might change your mind on what constitutes a peaceable person. We are still using the same approach to other adversaries in the 21st. Century. The question is does this type of portrayal benefit our leaders or us. Hitler was a mad dog and properly understanding him is what people need to make sure that new versions, large and small, can be stopped before they can do great harm. Based on the number of dangerous and insane leaders that have come to power since 1945 the supposedly sane leaders of the world are not doing a very good job. Using defamatory profiles in lieu of looking for the truth makes for good press copy but it does not stop the rise of Hitler’s.

Hitler, was sodomised by a jew after he was overcharged for a loaf of bread and he could not afford it.
He later went on to offer his body for food. He was between 10 and 15 years. His hatred for jews began there.
Austria, Germany and Italy had the highest male prostitution at the time.

Every day, Hitler would have a newborn Jewish baby delivered from one of the camps, for his huge baronial banquetting table, where the infant would be placed on a silver platter for carving after it had been roasted in an oven.

While the baby was roasting, and inbetween listening with joy to the sound of it's cries, Hitler would arrange the culterly and condiments on the table into armies - and then reenact a famous battle like Sevastapol, with a fruit bowl serving as the doomed city.

After he had dined on the best cuts from the baby, he would toss the remains of the carcass to his pet Alsatian dog, Blondi, and fall asleep in his throne, muttering in fits and starts under his breath about wonder weapons, and the invincibility of Tiger tanks.

As a historian I never read such primative hate filled drival....Hitler was a product of his time,and rose to power to combat Communism,in Germany and to break the Versailes treaty over his country and central Europe.He created many innovations socia politically and scientificaly.Winston Churchill was a monstrous drunk,who revelled in destruction.Roosevelt a demented egomanic toward the end,and there Allie. Stalin a beast.They demanded the unconditional surrender of the Axis.Hitler always hoped for settlement.Churchill said in 1943 in Queebec."We will never offer Hiler terms;"He will immediately accept." The OSS report was hate-filled drival,dismissed by every good historian.Red meat for hate-filled Americans

hi why do you have to say this about him.did you know that hitler when he stood to talk to the public he would continously speak for more than 3hours.the famous beetles(volks wagens)were introduced during his reign.suck you all who hate hitler..

Half of this crap you kids are saying isn't true, I'm sorry but this is bothering how stupid you can be, he is an idiotic man. Just think of it this way, he managed what white people did to black people, the Americans did to the Indians, and Africans do to each other, but in a shorter period of time, thats the only reason he is penalized so badly. I'm not saying he shouldn't be, but don't think any less of him then you do of the other political leaders who fucked with other races.

His middle name was not Elizabeth, a rumor that derived from his mother mentioning to a friend that if he turned out a girl, that's what his name would be.

He never indulged on babies, he was in fact a vegetarian.

If you want a really interesting fact, try this.

Think about all of the people that were murdered under his regime, now picture him dining at a restraunt.
He hears the lobster scream, as it hits the boiling point. You see, they are slowly boiled until death, so he felt pty for them right?
Crazy I know, but he passed the Crustean Laws, which stated you had to put them in boiling water at the start, and only one at a time if possible.
I know it sounds crazy, but my history teacher gave me a book to read about him, Adolf Hitler, The Psychopathic God, or something to that effect, and there is a section about that.
Not a rumor, not some bullshit story made to make him look worse, the truth.
And an odd fact =]

Later kids

hitler hated jews because he thought he was an artist and wantedd to get into the art institute which was runned by the jews. he was no accepted into the art institute and he thought it was because he wasnt jewish. when him and his drunken friends formed into the Nazi's, they wanted to get noticed and start a riot. They went after the jews. thats how i heard it started. you should also read the book him and the guy wrote while they were in jail, it will show you that he was not an intelligent guy at all. He knew how to speak to people but was not at all an intellegent guy. thanks bye

When Hitler's autopsy was done after his death, he was found to have only one testicle. Maybe this had something to do with him not letting anyone see him naked.

Hitler only had one testicle. On that note, Napoleon Bonaparte had the same situation...

p.s. to "MuthaFahkaImILL": it should be "Neither" was Hitler because of the negation. W/e though. It just makes you sound like an idiot. I'm sure you're not, though.

he killed jews cos they had all the good jobs in germany,jews gave jobs to jews,so if you had this today you wouldnt be to happy and thats why german people where angry with jews not just hitler.if your president told you to go out and kill jews would you?
no you wouldnt so why did the german people do it? becos they totaly agreed with him,hitler had alot of power becos he spoke what had being on there minds for a long time and it clicked,it would happen again today if people where given the chance,people would march on the goverment and remove him and why didnt they in germany?il tell you why the people knew well what was going on and enjoyed it,and when the war is over we will just blame it all on hitler even though we seen jews beating on our streets and taking from there homes and never seen again and yet we didnt know when we screamed at hitlers rallys in aid of gething rid of the jews,this is fact and people talk about hitler today mainly cos he had a gift which has not being seen since,not a good gift but still a gift,theres alot of lies on this site and fools taking it all in,this is fact and if the day comes that you have no food in your mouth and your kids mouths and some guy comes along to change this,this will be your hitler and your anger to whoever left you hungry and jobless will rise and payback comes racing up,so it wasnt just hitler it was hitler and the germans and the jews who are to blame,

i have heard that hitler had cyphalis (idk if that's how u spell it...) which causes severe insanity in its advanced stages. i think tho evil, hitler was a very very intelligent man who started out misguided, but ended in insanity. he did not always hope to be dictator and did not always hate the jews. for several years while he tried to live as an artist in vienna he lived in a hostel. because vienna was largely semitic, most of his roomates were jews. they were the ones that were mostly responsible for selling his art and giving him what little income he had at the time. at this point in his life, he somewhat held anti-semitic beliefs, but did not act on them and felt no serious or intense hatred or hostility towards them. it was not until the end of wwi, as that political parties began to spread the idea that it was the jews' faults for their suffering that that fire of violence was lit towards them inside of him. even then, he had no desire to be a dictator. he saw himself as a sort of political "evangelist"; spreading his firm beliefs of his 'world view'. only in the 3 or 4 yrs before he actually took power was the desire even present within him. i don't think that he was always evil, but he certainly ended that way, whether medically insane or not.

you dont dislike people for no reason if i went out on the streets and start running down a group of people, people would say why and on what grounds is this based on,why hide the truth the jews had to have done wrong when they had the chance,hitler didnt wake up some morning and say lets get the jews and iv no idea why but lets get them anyway,let me see everyone else ere in germany has a proplem with jews otherwise they wouldnt follow me,lets face it the jews gave him his opening and he took it just like everyone else in the country at the time.its never shown why germany done this only what germany did and bypass the facts by saying he was a mad man cos we cant let people see the facts about what really happened and lets not dig up any files about it,its the truth but dont show it and stir things up again.

Hitler did keep his mustache like that so it can be remembered but the reason for his mustache was in WW2 he was hit by mustrd gas and he shaved it down so he could fit his gas mask on properly.

hitler hitler,he's already dead so long now,why still hold on to old grudges.i'm not saying he should be forgiven,but wouldn't it be graceful of everyone to move on with their own lives and not ponder about this guy anymore. as if he was't famous enough in his lifetime,we have to have countless webpages featuring countless hitler facts

Did you know hitler was kept alive because of a nightmare he had,it was during the war and he was sleeping in a trench and he dreamed that he was being smothered so he went for an 'occational walk' to calm him down and it turned out when he went on that walk there was an attack and dirt covered up and smothered everyone else in the trench so if wouldnt have had that nightmare there wouldnt have been the evil holocaust back then wierd...

It makes me so mand when people call hitler stuped. I think what he did was very wrong but when people say he is stupid they are saying there stupid. The reason is because hitler was a very very smart man that was full of ideas but he used them for the wrong things. Hitler had a very high IQ level. In fact he was smarter than most people even today. Im fascinated with hitler because he was a very smart and brilliant man but he used them for the wrong things. I think what he did to jewis,cripples, meantly handicap, and old people was wrong but he was a smart man.

Did you know hitler only had one testicle

he didn't jews because HItler liked gypsie music and JEWISH singers even though he killed 10mllion jews (2.5million children)
Did you know that he killed: jews, gypsies, handicaped, black people, old people and other religion. and did you know he was a christian.
serious guys, hitler did not suck, he waas a very smart man.

If he ate babies, so what?
I'm a vegan, but if someone offered me some human meat I wouldn't turn it down.
Hot damn, that man is hot. I wish he was still alive today :(
Don't think he hated Jews either - it was just an easy way to get power. Like I'm not fond of Muslims or whatever, but I'd rather watch people I found appealing get killed because that's hot.
