Was Hitler a Junkie?

By on October 3, 2015

Hitler on drugs? I had never considered that, but a new book has been published (unfortunately only in German) that details Hitler’s drug addiction and also drug use by his top advisors … and civilians and frontline soldiers took Pervitin, a pill form of Crystal Meth.

At the end, when he was already hiding in his wet and dark Fuhrerbunker and his beloved Eukodal was no longer available, the dictator was in a frail state. He had lost his teeth, he was drooling and he was hallucinating. Hitler, the man who believed in what he called the “Aryan master race,” had ended up a junkie.

In Der totale Rausch: Drogen im Dritten Reich (The Total Rush: Drugs in the Third Reich), author Norman Ohler attributes the downfall of Hitler to drugs, primarily Eukodal, a preform of heroin. From time to time, the veins of the pure vegetarian also contained the anabolic steroids of pigs. And his “dealer” was none other than his personal doctor, Theodor Morell.

Not a very impressive cover, but here’s a link to the book (hope you can read German)
