During those last hours in his bunker in Berlin, Hitler made a painful decision to poison is dog, Blondie rather than have her captured and killed by the advancing Russians. Prof. Werner Haase was the person who administered the cyanide capsule to Blondie. The five puppies were shot by Hitler's
dog handler Fritz Tornow.


I once watched a documentary showing Hitler with Blondie, as Hitler walked up to pet her, Blondie
curled up, ears back and tail down it looked as if the poor animal was afraid and reluctant to be near the Fuhrer.
I'm guessing here, I have dogs and none of them have ever acted the way Blondie did in front of Hitler. When my dogs see me, they run and jump on me, to be near me and give me lots of love licks
they are my best friends...I doubt Hitler spent much time with Blondie, but what do I know, I'm no expert...

"I love animals and especially dogs"
-Adolf Hitler-


Hitler & Eva Braun took poison (cyanide) for the same reason, he had Blondie killed was to prevent himself and Eva Braun from being captured by the Russians.

Every day that Hitler lived, thousands upon
thousands would die. From January to April 1945 over 500,000 people went into the gas chambers, in that same period 4,000,000 military personnel and civilians died. Germany was being bombed day and night its cities and industries destroyed the
German people lived in a nightmare world.
Hitler's armies suffered tremendous losses in men and equipment with the Western Allies advancing
toward Germany, and the Soviets advancing from the east, it was only a matter of time to the end of Hitler's Nazi Germany...



January 16, 1945 Adolf Hitler entered into his
Fuhrerbunker in Berlin, and started one of the strangest episodes of World War II, its a fact,
that Hitler left the bunker from time to time for meetings in Berlin as time went on, and with the Russians about 60 miles away he kept within the bunker.


Hitler never lived to see another sunrise or sunset all daily activities, work, meals, bathing and bathroom, his last birthday and even married and died were all underground.
Hitler suffered from poor sleep patterns up for hours before retiring between 4:00 and 5:00 AM with sleeping on and off until 10:00 or 11:00 AM
Hitler did from time to time surface he would walk his dog, between artillery and bombing raids as Fuhrer, he awarded Iron Cross Decorations to Hitler Youth, SS and Army Troops.
On April 30, 1945 Hitler killed himself, Berlin fell to the Russians, on May 7, 1945 the war in Europe was over. The Second World War, has been over for 68 years in another 32 years, it will be 100 years since its end, and still the unanswered questions will be asked, as to what really happened during those last days of Hitler's Third Reich...

I've always been interested in history, especially
WWII and the Third Reich

Did you know that Hitler took (74) different types of drugs, he took them for just about everything
even in his Fuhrerbunker, he took as many as (9) injections of crystal meth, based on medical records from doctors who treated him and his personal doctor Theodor Morell.


Hitler's routine based on eye witness accounts
the Fuhrer started his day around 10am, take care of morning hygiene, breakfast, with military briefings until mid afternoon, lunch, and later received visitors and conducted other business.
Later took dinner and studied maps and met with his military advisers, discussing the current war situation with military briefings and meetings with his Generals and aids. Continued briefing into the early AM hours.
Hitler took brief visits outside the bunker with his dog blondi Hitler suffered from poor sleep patters and usually retired around 4 or 5AM. The living conditions in the bunker were described as depressing and claustrophobic with the constant hum of the ventilation system and noise of the generators.
Along with the relentless day and night Soviet artillery shelling. During the Fuhrer's meetings with his Generals, he would demand updates on battlefield situations and study maps giving orders to his Generals to move armies around that didn't exist.
What military formations did exist couldn't stop the Soviet steamroller. With Soviets attacking from one side, and Allied forces attacking from the other, The Third Reich was doomed the only person keeping it going was Adolf Hitler...


Its common knowledge that Adolf Hitler was a vegetarian his diet consisted of soups, corn, eggs,
baked and mashed potatoes, cottage cheese,
oatmeal, stewed fruits, salads and vegetables,
also, another one of Hitler's favorite meals were noodles w/tomato sauce.

Hitler did enjoy liver dumplings throw in a stuffed
pigeon from time to time...no thanks I'll pass on the pigeons. About this meat thing, Hitler from
time to time did enjoy ham and sausage while at his Wolf's Lair in East Prussia.


Cookies, cakes and other pastries, chocolates along with rolls and breads with a spread of jelly or jam. Hitler drank juice, milk, coffee, tea and
mineral water labeled FACHINGER did you know this brand of water is still sold in Europe today.


We all know about the marriage in the bunker, but what the civil official performed the ceremony
enter Walter Wagner, a Nazi Party member and
lawyer and local notary arrived at the bunker on April 29, 1945. Legal documents were found to perform the marriage after the ceremony Wagner
left and returned to his army unit, and was later killed. The marriage between Hitler & Braun, is seen in films:
Hitler The Last Ten Days 1971
The Bunker 1981
Downfall 2004
