A group of researchers have come to a conclusion that Adolf Hitler suffered from Parkinson’s disease during his reign as of Führer of Germany.
The scientists claim the disease may have played a major role in Adolf Hitler’s rash decisions, including the senseless murder of Jews and invasion of Russia that caused him defeat during World War II.
Raghav Gupta, who led a scientific study at the University of Pittsburgh published in the journal World Neurosurgery says:
The possibility of Hitler suffering from Parkinson’s has long been the subject of debate.’
The researchers go further to explain that Hitler’s condition may have caused his premature attack of Russia in 1941.
Another study also suggests that Hitler’s decision to invade Russia, before defeating Britain on the western front, keeping his forces in Stalingrad in 1942 and failure to defend Normandy in 1944 was a direct result of his ailment.
The study points out that Hitler’s ‘volatile temperament’ may have been aggravated by his Parkinson’s.
The study also goes on to suggest that Hitler’s lack of remorse and sympathy can be associated with the disease.
Hitler’s inhumane personality, marked by a true lack of sympathy and remorse, can also be ascribed to his condition, often compelling him to act in ways that we today characterise as brutal, callous, and unethical.’
