Hitler's food taster tells of poisoning fears



BERLIN (AP) — They were feasts of sublime asparagus — laced with fear. And for more than half a century, Margot Woelk kept her secret hidden from the world, even from her husband. Then, a few months after her 95th birthday, she revealed the truth about her wartime role: Adolf Hitler's food taster.
Woelk, then in her mid-twenties, spent two and a half years as one of 15 young women who sampled Hitler's food to make sure it wasn't poisoned before it was served to the Nazi leader in his "Wolf's Lair," the heavily guarded command center in what is now Poland, where he spent much of his time in the final years of World War II.
"He was a vegetarian. He never ate any meat during the entire time I was there," Woelk said of the Nazi leader. "And Hitler was so paranoid that the British would poison him — that's why he had 15 girls taste the food before he ate it himself."
With many Germans contending with food shortages and a bland diet as the war dragged on, sampling Hitler's food had its advantages.
"The food was delicious, only the best vegetables, asparagus, bell peppers, everything you can imagine. And always with a side of rice or pasta," she recalled. "But this constant fear — we knew of all those poisoning rumors and could never enjoy the food. Every day we feared it was going to be our last meal."
The petite widow's story is a tale of the horror, pain and dislocation endured by people of all sides who survived World War II.
Only now in the sunset of her life has she been willing to relate her experiences, which she had buried because of shame and the fear of prosecution for having worked with the Nazis, although she insists she was never a party member. She told her story as she flipped through a photo album with pictures of her as a young woman, in the same Berlin apartment where she was born in 1917.

Out of the 42 known attempts on Hitler's life, only one (at the Hotel Kaiserhof in 1930), was by poisoning.

Still, that would be a crappy job.
It's sad to hear of the rapes she went through by the russians.

As many people that hated that man that is one job I would of not wanted.  I'm surprised there was only one attempt to poison him.

The security blanket that surrounded Adolf Hitler would have put a modern US President to shame! Also, you'd be amazed at the amount of luck that man had!

You mean by surviving three bomb attacks? (one in the Braukeller in Munich in '35, one in the Paris opera in '41 and the one at the Wolfsschanze in '44). In two cases a lot of people died and the ar$e got away with no or only a few scratches.

Edit: Sorry, the Braukeller was '39 not '35... got my numbers mixed up again.

So did Winston Churchill. Once he had a bad feeling in some meeting they were having in a house. He ordered everyone out. The house was then hit by a bomb shell.
