Highlight Story

German dictator Adolph Hitler’s secretary Christa Schroeder who served him for 12 years, recounts her experiences in a 1949 memoir named Hitler in Private.

The unique memoir is soon going to be translated into English. The New York Post reveals some highlights — including an account of Hitler’s doctor injecting him with hormones from bull testicles.

Titled 'He Was My Chief: The Memoirs of Adolph Hitler's Secretary', these are some Hitler quotes:

* On his opposition to meat-eating: "The human is an evil animal of prey.”

* On the Japanese: “The Japanese are yellow-skinned and slit-eyed, but they are fighting against Britain and the United States.”

* On dieting: "I have to eat less, I am putting on fat, I must lose it!"

* As the Allies closed in: "Remain calm. Berlin will remain German, we just have to gain time!"
