Hitler’s Medical Secret

For those interested in the Freudian interpretation of Hitler's evils: According to a new document that records a conversation between the doctor who saved Hitler's life in World War I and his priest, Adolf Hitler lost a testicle in the 1916 Battle of the Somme. Said a friend of the doctor, "Hitler was injured in the abdomen and lost one testicle. His first question to the doctor was: 'Will I be able to have children?'." Rumors of Hitler's, eh, amputation have long been rumored—an American World War II song began "Hitler has only got one ball, the other is in the Albert Hall"—but never been confirmed. Fun bonus fact: The medical term for a man with one testicle is "monorchic."
