Celle, Germany - The last member of Adolf Hitler’s notorious inner circle has died at age 96, leaving behind instructions to publish a manuscript about his time spent alongside the German dictator, the Telegraph reported.

Fritz Darges was present for all major conferences, social engagements and policy announcements during World War II — and experts believe his memoir could disprove claims by some disputed historians that Hitler never directly ordered the extermination of the Jews, and that the “final solution” was the brainchild of SS chief Heinrich Himmler.

Darges rose to the rank of lieutenant colonel and thought Hitler was a genius. It was rumored that the dictator’s sister-in-law Gretel Braun was interested in him, but he “didn’t think he should become the brother-in-law of the Fuhrer.”

In 1944, Darges’ relationship with Hitler changed at a conference when Hitler ordered him to destroy a fly that buzzed around the room.

Darges suggested that, as it was an “airborne pest,” the job should go to the Luftwaffe staff officer, Nicolaus von Below.

Enraged, Hitler dismissed Darges, yelling, “You’re for the eastern front,” and Darges was sent to combat.

Darges died at his home in Celle, northern Germany.

Towards the end of the war the trains were ordered to continue deportations even through there was a moratorium on all civilian travel because of the need to transport military troops and supplies. Such orders overruling the military could have only come from AH y"sh.

Apparently Hitler didn't have much of a sense of humor or else being the meglomaniac he was he lost it when someone didn't obey his orders.
For those who compare obama to Hitler at least he killed the fly himself.

If they have known where he was for the last 60+ years, why hasn't he been arrested and brought to trial for war crimes? Are the war crimes tribunals too busy prosecuting Israel?

Memoirs Of Hitler SS Soldier Fritz Darges: 'Would Do It All Again'
by Ann Warren

Darges, unlike Hitler's victims, managed to live to the ripe old age of 96 before leaving instructions that, only after his death, could the memoirs he wrote be published. Considering Darges considered Hitler 'the greatest man who ever lived', he may have presented his Fuhrer in the most positive way possible, which would likely have angered survivors of that hideous period in German history.

This worm of a body will rot in hell for eternity. Apparently the worm had some deeds that needed to be paid with a long life span. Now that his days are ended his end has come. YSVZ Fritz the Worm.

Wonderful news! Trouble is that there are plenty more out there of these anti-semites! Do you notice that many of these Nazis live into their 90's because they have no souls and no hereafter! They were just evil holograms to do just evil in the world. Good riddance to them!

Many, many Nazis and their accomplices lived to a ripe old age. Only a miniscule number were punished. Many former Nazi scientists were given jobs at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida and elsewhere, to help with missile technology. Let's not kid ourselves. His story is more the rule than the exception. And don't expect him to make any apologies for being an accomplice to mass genocide. Why should he? Billions of people around the world hate the Jews and wish we were all dead.

On the whole, Nazis did not live longer than other people. Most of them are long dead. But of course in any large population there will always be some who have long lives.

This comparison is stupid and insult to the millions whose blood was spilled innocently. There is not much interest by unzere heilige yidden who attended conventions with ex-Nazis. Must write of this remark to sheer ignorance

In 1945 there were kanoim who lost their life in Paraguay hunting Mengele. Today we have kanoim who pour hot water on Jewish women walking on the wrong side of the street. We really have made progress and achieved a madreiga in ahavas yisroel

One year ago I was invited to speak at a very chushive gathering during the nine days. It was sad the Beis Hamidrash was full of the so called "yunge leit " and fine bochurim and where I spoke maybe a minyan people were present. That is why so many criminals survived . The Pinchas for the survivors is not here only for a brief period there were those who hunted Eichmann and Mengele
