Hitler’s Sugar Obsession Recalled In New Bio

He planned to introduce vegetarianism as a lifestyle after the war and until his very last day, he only allowed his visitors to eat the meat of the dead animals he likes, while he was nibbling on carrots, noodles, dry bread and cakes and would only drink peppermint tea and very rarely a low-alcoholic beer. He was a sugar freak, who ate tons of pastries and chocolate until he died.

Friedelind Wagner met Adolf Hitler for the first time when she was only out of kindergarten, but she could still remember the Fuhrer’s eating habits, his passion for opera and his always changing temper.  She was born in 1918 and was Hitler’s favorite composer Richard Wagner’s granddaughter.

She lived at the Wahnfried villa in Bayreuth, where Hitler enjoyed playing with her and her three siblings. Winifred was their mother and she loved Hitler to bits. She used to call him “Wolf” and hoped to marry him following the sudden death of her husband at the time.

The majority will agree on the fact that Mein Kampf was a boring book with a few exceptions, while the “Heritage of Fire”, Friedelind’s book, which came out in 1945, just after the war, is a hilarious collection of tales about Adolf Hitler, who would often invite her out. The book reads how after long hours of waiting and talking at the table, all four kids would be waiting for Hitler to get up and fart, a problem Hitler had for quite some time, since his secretary, Traudl Junge also talked about it and about the pills he used to take for flatulence, the Bloomberg Luxury reports.

After hearing about the 1934 incident in which Hitler killed his competition in the SA, she wrote “The poor Fuehrer!” and underlined how hard it felt  “to be betrayed by your best friends,” which suggests that she either played stupid the whole time, or she just didn’t realize what was going on and the kind of monster she had been feeding.

He then went on to confess to Mausi and her siblings about his “cleansing action” and expressing his frustration over the fact that his men killed the wrong Wili Schmidt. The reason was that there were too many men named Wili Schmidt in Munich and he really didn’t mean to kill that musicologist who was having dinner with his wife.

During an evening at the opera, while watching “Rheingold”, Friedelind noticed a few men entering Hitler’s box to give him some good news: He was being told that his man had just killed the chancellor of Austria, Engelbert Dollfuss.
