Hitler In the News: Bull testicle hormone made Hitler romantic

LONDON: In an astonishing revelation found in the memoirs of Christa Schroeder, Adolf Hitler’s secretary, Hitler often hallucinated about happier romantic times because his doctor often injected him with hormones procured from the testicles of bulls. According to Schroeder’s book, the Führer’s mood was known to change in the blink of an eye, and his periodic bursts of bonhomie perplexed and overwhelmed most in his inner circle. Schroeder worked for the Führer from 1933 until the end in May 1945. Hitler became so relaxed in Schroeder’s company that he would talk with surprising openness about his childhood. Schroeder was arrested at the end of the war and after being convicted as a war criminal, was reclassified as a collaborator and released from prison in 1948. She died aged 76 in June 1984.
