Hello fellow H-German subscribers.
I have been trying to find sources that refer to Hitler's personal documents. I have exhausted all of the research of which I am familiar. This topic was introducted in Brisard and Parshina's book The Death of Hitler: The Final Word. Hitler had his personal documents with him in Berlin when he was in the bunker. He was planning to fly from Obersalzberg to escape the Russian invasion of Berlin. But, as we all know, he stayed behind. What I hadn't heard before was that all of the planes that left Berlin for Obersalzburg made it successfully except for one, which contained Hitler's personal documents (p.67). There are no footonotes for this information. Has any come across this information in any other secondary or primary resource?
Thanks for all of you who read my email. You can contact me on list or at email@example.com.
