[In this relaxed non-hostile interview, conducted in 1948 by Nuremberg Judge, Michael Musmanno, August Wollenhaupt describes his pleasant experience as Hitler’s barber from 1932 to March 1945.
One of the outstanding features that this interview brings out, contrary to many decades of cartoonish propaganda both from Hollywood and from the halls of “academia” and its well rewarded, yet whorish scribblings, is Hitler’s well balanced personality, his humanity and good manners towards someone very low on the official totem pole — KATANA.]

Throughout the interview, MM refers to Musmanno and AW refers to Hitler’s barber, August Wollenhaupt.
MM: When did you first meet Adolf Hitler?
AW: I first actually saw him in 1929 in Berlin. He was then just a young politician and he happened to be leaving a bakery as I was walking in. I looked at him because I recognized him. He gave me quite the piercing stare. After that I attended a speech of his and I have to confess he was quite something up there.
MM: Were you a Nazi party member?
