Adolf Hitler's bodyguard Rochus Misch, who died aged 96, said of the Nazi leader in a 2005 interview, "He was no brute. He was no monster. He was no Superman."
Speaking to the Associated Press, Misch described Hitler as "a very normal man" and "a wonderful boss."
Misch told the news agency, "I lived with him for five years. We were the closest people who worked with him ... we were always there. Hitler was never without us day and night."
The former SS man said he knew nothing of the murder of six million Jews and that Hitler never brought up the Final Solution in his presence.
"That was never a topic," he said emphatically. "Never."
