SS Oberscharfuhrer

Rochus Misch (b. 1917) worked as a courier, bodyguard and telephone operator for Adolf Hitler from 1940 to 1945. As a junior member of Hitler's permanent staff, Misch travelled with the German leader from bunker to bunker throughout the second world war. On January 16, 1945, following German defeat in the Battle of the Bulge, Misch, together with the rest of Hitler's personal staff, moved into the Führerbunker in Berlin, not to leave it for any significant periods of time until the end of the war. Misch handled all of the direct communication from the bunker.

I think it is amazing that there are still a handful of survivors of the Fuhrerbunker! I would love to meet this man!!! :D

Shame about his name though, it sounds like a medical description of phlegm !
