The Ottawa Citizen reports today that Rochus Misch, the man who fondly referred to Adolph Hitler as “boss” died of an illness on Thursday. During WWII Misch served as Hitler’s personal bodyguard and was one of the few people to be with Hitler in his final hours. Misch said he was proud of the years he spent with Hitler.
He said that Hitler and Eva Braun, his wife, committed suicide before the Soviet Red Army moved in on Hitler’s bunker.
At age 20, Misch joined the SS and was assigned to the unit in charge of protecting Hitler.
Hitler never went anywhere without Misch and Johannes Hentschel. Misch said the following about Hitler:
“He was a wonderful boss, I lived with him for five years. We were the closest people who worked with him ... We were always there. Hitler was never without us day and night.”
He said Hitler and Eva Braun went into a room and then shut the door. Neither Misch nor Hentschel heard anything else. Misch said he didn’t hear a gunshot or any other sounds from the room. After someone else had opened the door, opening the door and looking into the room, He described the scene after looking in the door—both Hitler and Braun were dead. Hitler was lying on a table and Eva Braun was on the sofa next to Hitler
Afterward, German soldiers covered Hitler and Braun, poured gasoline on their bodies, set their corpses on fire and then left.
