Adolf Hitler's genitals have long caused controversy. But, it's confirmed now -- the Nazi leader had only got one ball.
According to World War I veteran Johan Jambor, Hitler had only one testicle. In fact, the medic made the revelation to a priest in the 1960s, who wrote it down. Now, the document has come to light 23 years after the doctor's death.
The war tyrant's medical condition has been mocked for years in a British song. The lyrics are: "Hitler has only got one ball, the other is in the Albert Hall. His mother, the dirty b****r, cut it off when he was small."
Until now, there has never been complete proof Hitler was monorchic -- the medical term for having one testicle. But the document tells how Jambor saw the proof with his own eyes.
In the account, he relives the horror of serving as an army medic in World War I. He died aged 94 in 1985, but had told his secret to priest Franciszek Pawlar, who kept a note of their conversation.
Jambor's close friend Blassius Hanczuch confirmed the priest's account of how the medic saved Hitler's life.
"In 1916 they had their hardest fight in the Battle of the Somme. For several hours, Johan and his friends picked up injured soldiers. He remembers Hitler. They called him the 'Screamer'. He's very noisy. Hitler's screaming 'help, help'.
"His abdomen and legs were all in blood. Hitler was injured in the abdomen and lost one testicle. His first question to doctor was: 'Will I be able to have children?'," Blassius was quoted by 'The Sun' as saying.
Blassius, however, said that when the Nazis swept to power Jambor began to suffer nightmares and blamed himself for saving Hitler.
