Fritz Darges died on Sunday, 25 October 2009 aged 96.
Shortly before he died, reporters of the German newspaper BILD met with him in his house in Celle (Lower Saxony). In an artictle entitled "Hitlers letzter Adjutant tot" they write that he lived alone, his wife, a medical doctor having passed away three years ago. His state of health had declined, he did not hear well, he did not see well.
His mind was alert. His memory was alive.
Until his last breath he did not say a bad word about Adolf Hitler.
When Fritz Darges was asked whether he would do everything again as he had done, he replied: "Ja. Unser Traum war doch ein gro▀deutsches Reich.ô ("Yes. Our dream, after all, was a Greater German Empire.")
Fritz Darges wrote down his memoirs. They shall be published now after his death.
