00010713.GIF Page 1 HansJuergen Koehler Inside Information Henny von Schirach takes quite a special position among the wives of the leaders. She is the daughter of Hans Hoffmann, Hitler's photographer. As a young girl she lived with her father in close proximity to Hitler. She was extremely pretty and attractive, and it appears that Hitler was in love with her for a while. But Hitler's make-up...... prevented him from making normal approaches to her. So Henny was very soon disgusted and turned her attentions elsewhere like his earlier flames. It only remains to say a few words about the women whose names have been linked with that of Hitler himself. Adolf Hitler has a peculiar kind of perversion in his behavior to women which is impossible to describe in detail. This, however, did not stop him in the early days from showing a very keen interest in them. Only when he was compelled to realize that this peculiarity excluded normal relations did he withdraw to the solitude of Haus Wachenfeld and give up the idea of finding a wife who would be amenable to his peculiarity. It is absolutely untrue .... that Hitler married some months ago. Hitler has gained the reputation of being a misogynist, which he by no means is. I have already mentioned that I had occasion to live for some months under the same roof as Hitler, and I have repeatedly noticed how susceptible the Leader was to pretty women and how quickly and skillfully he withdrew after his first advances. In earlier years, this was not so. Once he went as far as to be engaged. This was in 1923, the woman was Jenny Haug, the sister of his first chauffeur, Actually Hitler was already conscious of his perversion which excluded the possibility of consumation, so although he courted her and took her out frequently he politely took his leave at her door. Practical Jenny was by no means content with this merely superficial attachment, for she suspected that her swain must be intimate with some other woman and as a consequence shrank from making love to her more violently. Hitler was annoyed about this abd [sic] soon broke off the engagement. The greatest attachment he has had for a woman was in his Munich days, and this for his niece, Grete Raubal. I have only heard the stort [sic] told by friends in the Party, as Grete herself - or 'Geli, as Hitler called her -took her life in 1930 out of grief for her "Alf's abnormality. Grete grew up in her uncle's house. She appears to be the only woman who has loved him really unselfishly and who strove for a permanent tie with him. As she was the daughter of his step-sister a legal marriage would have been possible. Hitler loved his niece enough to think of wedding her yet he knew that his abnormality woild [sic] make a marriage scarcely tolerable. He visited several well known doctors and even underwent treatment which, however, was not successful. In spite of this he endeavored to steer his relations with Geli into normal channels, for he believed that he would find in her a sympathetic understanding. It seems that Geli was with him in his efforts. But the various courses of 00010714.GIF Page 2 Hansjuergen Koehler Inside Information of treatment which he had undergone became public knowledge and were used by friends and opponents for extortion. This, and their actual relationship which was becoming more and more intolerable, finally seem to have driven Geli to suicide. [Unreadable] all events Hitler was for a while completely Geli's, and her death was a very heavy blow for him. Nevertheless, quite a number of other women have played a certain part in his life. In his Munich days his friend Esser's rather common wife took his fancy. There followed in rapid succession Erna Hanfstaengl, (Putzi Hanfstaengel's sister), and Winifred Wagner .... Both affairs fell through without any more intimate attachment having been formed [unreadable] although he still keeps [unreadable] very good friendship with them. Then Hitler fell for Leni Riefenstahl, the film star, and the prima-donna, Margarete Slezak. More recently he took a liking to an American dancer and a young Englishwoman whom he h.d invited to Haus Wachenfeld. All these women have passed before him like shadows and, as is understandable, have done nothing to alter the morbidity of his nature. It must be stressed that the Leader is decidedly not a homosexual. All such rumors are based on the fact that it cannot be proved that he has had any normal relations with women. His sexual abnormality is of quite different a nature. It is not incumbent upon me to go into details regarding this rather rare condition, and to do so would only give offense. It will be for the medical profession, at a later date, when Hitler is but a name, to expatiate on this aspect. I am convinced that lack of knowledge on this point leaves much unexplained in his life and disposition, because the absence of facts leaves his character incomplete. It must be stated that the facts arc well know to a number of doctors and also by his own circle. pp. 23-25; Koehler, Inside Information One of Hitler's affairs was with [unreadable] pretty opera singer, Margarete Slezak ..... Her mother was a Jewess; but this made no difference during the brief infatuation of the Fuehrer. Nor did he hesitate to visit Bayreuth and admire Winifred Wagner. The daughter of the great German composer was certainly no pure Aryan .... p. 191, Koehler, Inside Information 00010715.GIF Page 3 Hansjurgen Koehler Inside Information (From a secret file of Himmler's) Perhaps I should mention here another newspaper cutting ..... dated in the year 1911, it was taken from the Kronenzeitung of Vienna. There are only a few lines: Sunday' s Bathing Accidents. 'The unemployed Adolf H. drifted into strong currents while bathing near Greifenstein and was in danger of drowning. He was rescued by the bathing attendant, Josef Ehrenstrasser. ' pp. 208/209, Koehler, Inside Information "e learned that a letter went from the Imperial Chancellery to the Mayor of Greifenstein. It roused no little sensation in the little summer resort. The Chancellery requested the full address of Josef Ehrenstrssser, since the Chancellor proposed to send him a present. What could the German Chancellor have to do with Josef Ehrenstrasser? .... 'If people find out that I once saved the chap's life, they'll knock me in the head,' he grumbled.. 'Tell the Chancellery I'm dead .' This was done, Greifenstein denied his hero, the man who almost made history. p. 220. Koehler, Inside Information (Himmler(s secret dossiers) One note read: 'Boasts that in the early days of the party he was always giving the Fuehrer money, as one gives a tip to a servant.' (Hence his effrontery). p. 219, Koehler, Inside Information.
