Adolf Hitler suffered from "uncontrollable flatulence," injected himself with bull semen to spark his diminishing libido and craved cocaine.
Some historical documents set to be auctioned off at a price between $1,500 to $2,000 each are painting a very different picture of the Nazi dictator. As reported by the Washington Examiner, the cache of documents includes interviews with Hitler's doctors and the diary entries of one physician who wrote down things he heard the Nazi leader say.
His doctors noted that Hitler had several medical complaints, one of them being flatulence, which was blamed on his vegetarian diet. He took pills in an attempt to quell the embarrassing problem.
Hitler also expressed his desire for beautiful women, but his libido eventually decreased, though he was living with Eva Braun, his long-time companion. Hitler injected himself with semen from young bulls in an effort to stimulate his sexual desire, as recorded by Dr. Theodore Morrell.
"Sexual organs showed no indications of abnormality or pathology and secondary sex characteristics were normally developed. Hitler was very fond of the society of attractive women, particularly during the years of his rise to power. In later years his libido was apparently sublimated with the increase in...responsibility. Morrell believes that Hitler, although not strongly inclined to sexual activity, did have sexual intercourse with Eva Braun, though they were accustomed to sleep in separate beds," one document said.
Another report from Dr. Erwin Giesing said Hitler used cocaine to "clear his sinuses," and began craving it more because it made him happy. Giesing wrote that he had to cut Hitler's "dosage."
Giesing also wrote that he overheard Hitler, in a voice that was "unnaturally loud and a little bit screaming," make comments about his own political influence.
"My only opponent is Stalin, who is almost on the same level as I am...Bolshevism will lose against Nationalism, and I will crush East Asia," Hitler said, according to Giesing. "Churchill and Roosevelt are neither politically nor militarily a factor. England will break-up...America will take whatever is left and wipe the English empire from history...I will be the one who tips the scale between the Russians and the Anglo-Americans."
Many of the documents are in German. The cache will be auctioned May 8th and 9th at Alexander Historical Auctions.
