Truth behind Hitler’s ‘war wound’

HE’S one of history’s most notorious figures, and now researchers have confirmed a long-standing rumour surrounding Adolf Hitler.

A medical record reportedly shows the former German dictator had only one testicle.

The document is from the time when Hitler was behind bars after the failed Munich beer hall putsch in 1923.


It states he suffered from “right-side cryptorchidism”, a condition where a testicle fails to descend into the scrotum.

That dismisses claims he lost the testicle during the Battle of the Somme in the First World War.

There have been many jokes about it over the years and plenty of parodies.
