As for his eccentric and superstitious nature, we have only the testimonies of those who knew him to go by. Anyways, here are the ten most interesting rumors surrounding Adolf Hitler. Bear in mind that most of these cannot and will not ever be confirmed beyond reasonable doubt seeing how propaganda tends to get mixed up with historical truth when talking about him.
