Dr. Theodore on Prof. Dr. med. Theodor

Der Reichsspritzenmeister

Dalrymple reminds us that Adolf Hitler’s personal physician, Theodor Morell,

kept a secret diary in which he recorded his master’s manifold symptoms and his unconventional treatment of them.

Morell, Dalrymple points out, was known sarcastically as the Chief Reich Injection Officer or the Reich Master of Injections. His methods are thought by many

to have hastened Hitler’s physical deterioration. Once in US captivity, Morell himself claimed to have applied such treatment precisely for that end; but then he would, wouldn’t he?
