    Default Hitler's last adjutant is dead !!!

    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.

    I met Fritz some years ago at the OdR JHV in Siegburg and have some wonderful memories and photos of that meeting , he told myself and a friend the famous " fly " story personally . During the meeting on the Friday afternoon Otto Gunsche arrived to see Darges and they had along conversation , oh to have been a fly on that wall !!!!

    Darges won the Ritterkreuz whilst commanding SS Panzer Regt 5 Wiking in April 1945.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    What a shame that he never changed his ideals of support for Hitler's murderous regime. How unfortunate that the passing years did not bring wisdom, regret, or a change of heart to him.

    A little bit of living history is now gone, to bad he had no regrets to educate the younger generations. Things now are just to gray for my liking.
