Adolf Hitler was likely the most ruthless despot and mass murder of the 20th century, and likely one of the most of all time. Now if you don’t have the mental capacity or an ounce of humanity to view six million dead and the invasion of countless countries around the globe didn’t convince you that Hitler was unpleasant at least and a murderous beast at worst, well here is another reason. According to some notes found recently that were written in 1945 who dined with Hitler recently, he was disgusting and beyond rude at the dinner table.
The German dictator had shocking table manners, constantly bit his nails and suffered from a digestive disorder that may have resulted in severe flatulence, according to an aide.
“Hitler eats rapidly, mechanically; for him food is merely an indispensable means of subsistence,” the soldier wrote.
“At the table and in his speech he shows many facets of rather uncouth behaviour.
“He abstractedly bites his fingernails, he runs his index finger back and forth under his nose, and his table manners are little short of shocking.
“He does not smoke and it is strictly forbidden to smoke in his presence as he seems to be very susceptible to laryngitis.”
The unidentified soldier revealed he dined with Hitler about 30 times and kept notes in the bunker where Hitler saw out the last few weeks of the World War II.
