00010937.gif RIESS, The Self-Betrayed ....On August 1st (1934) Hindenburg suffered a stroke. When Hitler received word of this, he went to Neudeck - in order, he declared, to take leave of Germany's great soldier. He entered the dying man's room alone, although he had arrived at Neudeck with his friend, Hanfstaengel. Hindenburg's son and daughter-in-law, as well as the doctors, withdrew. By then, the old man had been unconscious for a long time. Nevertheless, Hitler later admitted reluctantly, in a voice choked with sorrow, that Hindenburg had awakened once from his coma, shaken hands with him, and had then fallen asleep again. pp. 153/154, Riess, The Self-Betrayed The material in this book is very doubtful and has given rise to protest against the author and his unreliability.
