Hitler really only had one ball

Now officiallyHitler only had one testicle

Munich - Did Adolf Hitler have stunted genitals?

During World War II, the English mocked Hitler with the song: "Hitler Has Only Got One Ball" (German: "Hitler had only one egg".)

The historian Volker Ulrich even gives the question two pages in his Hitler biography.

In 2008, a Polish clergyman's report from the First World War was discovered.

Hitler was injured in the groin area by a shrapnel during the Battle of the Somme. He lost a testicle in the process. I guess that's not entirely true.

► Now the truth about Hitler's private parts is certain. The historian and head of the Munich Main State Archives Peter Fleischmann (60) discovered a document in the archive that clearly proves Hitler's condition.

It is Hitler's official medical examination in Landsberg Prison on November 12, 1923.

After the failed coup of November 9, 1923, Hitler was arrested on November 11 in Utting am Staffelsee.

► He was transported to Landsberg at 10.30 p.m. on the same day. The next day, medical officer Dr. Josef Brinsteiner.

In the "Admission Book for Protective Custody" he entered: "Adolf Hitler, artist, ultimately writer."

He described his state of health as "healthy, strong". Body weight: 78 kilograms.

The next comment is crucial: "right-wing cryptorchidism".

► A cryptorchidism means: A testicle did not migrate through the testicle ladder into the scrotum in childhood.

He got stuck in the ladder.

Historian Fleischmann: "Probably the testicle is then stunted."
