UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Alice Frank Stoke recently turned 101, in her long biography there were a lot of different events. As a child, a woman lived next to Adolf Hitler, Ms. Stoke shared her memories with reporters.
In the 1920s, Adolf Hitler lived in Munich, he took an apartment on Prinzregentenplatz 16. Then the future Fuhrer just got out of prison, where the authorities hid him for an unsuccessful coup attempt. Hitler and Stoke lived in the same house, and the woman was brought up in a Jewish family. They intersected infrequently, but Stoke always saw Adolf surrounded by many SS supporters.
“We lived in a large house with several entrances. One led to our apartment number 14, the other – either to number 13, or to number 15, where Hitler lived. We heard gossip from the cook and others. And they saw a coffin being taken out of that entrance. I think Hitler’s niece, Geli Raubal, also lived there and died. There are many versions about where she lived and how she died. I think that she was in that coffin, but there is no evidence for this, ”the Fuhrer’s neighbor said.
Ms. Stoke saw Angelika Maria Raubal, Hitler’s niece, many times. Since 1929, the girl lived with her uncle, and many historians believe that they were connected by a romantic relationship. In 1937, Raubal died at the age of 23. Most likely, she committed suicide in Adolf Hitler’s apartment. Heavily surviving the death of his niece, the Führer nearly killed himself.
But the Führer made a conclusion from the tragedy very original. The grief broke him so much that he became a vegetarian for life.
“Once I went to the opera, the tickets went from the school, and they were in the government box,” Stoke continued to recall.
But SS members did not let the girl into this box. Subsequently, it turned out that Hitler was sitting there.
Hitler lived at Princeregentenplatz until 1934, then he moved, but remained the owner of the apartment. The family of Alice Frank herself lived in Germany for several years, but then left the country, fearing the persecution of the Jews. In 1937, Stoke moved to London, where she found work, met her husband, with whom she had lived all her life.
“I had a good life. I would advise everyone to walk more, ski, and sometimes drink a glass of red wine, ”an interesting storyteller finished the story.
