Long-lost medical records of Adolf Hitler apparently confirm the urban legend that he only did have one ball…
For decades, British schoolchildren sung the rhyme which mocked the Nazi leader for only having one testicle. But now, a German historian claims to have found actual evidence that this may be more truthful than first thought.
Medical notes – made in 1923 during a prison check-up – were unearthed by Professor Peter Fleischmann of Erlangen-Nuremberg University and suggests Hitler suffered from ‘right-side cryptorchidism’- an undescended right testicle. Brilliant.
The bloke who examined Hitler – Dr Josef Steiner Brin – said other than that he was ‘healthy and strong’. The records were thought to be lost forever, but resurfaced at an auction in Bavaria in 2010. They were quickly confiscated by the Bavarian government before being studied.
Fleischmann told German newspaper Bild they show one of Hitler’s testicles was ‘probably stunted’.
This new theory completely contradicts beliefs that Hitler may of lost a bollock during the Battle of the Somme in WWI or reports from his childhood doctor who told American interrogators in 1943 that his genitals were normal.
Well, at least we now know his other ball is not in the Albert Hall…
