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.

The material in this book is very doubtful and 
has given rise to protest against the author 
and his unreliability.
