A Jewish woman who revealed last year that she lived next door to Adolf Hitler before World War II has provided new details about the life of the Nazi leader.
Alice Frank Stock, who recently turned 102, said she spent her early years living near Hitler in Munich in the 1920s and 1930s, according to British news agency SWNS. Stock, whose family lived on Prinzregentenplatz, added that she saw a coffin come out of Hitler’s apartment, which is believed to contain his niece, Geli Raubal.
“We have heard from many [rumors], the cook and others, ”Stock said. We saw a coffin being carried out of the entrance. I think Hitler’s niece lived there and then she died. There was speculation on how and when she died. I think there was some truth in it that the coffin was made and that there was a woman. ”
101-YEAR-OLD JEWISH WOMAN SAYS HITLER WAS HER NEIGHBOR IN GERMANY
Raubal was Hitler’s half-niece and it is generally believed that she committed suicide in 1931, at the age of 23. She is believed to have shot herself in the head with a pistol that belonged to the German dictator. Hitler, who held his half-niece firmly, acting possessively towards her, ultimately declared that Raubal was the only woman he had ever loved, according to the 1960 book, “The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich.”
An exact cause of Raubal’s death has never been confirmed and is still the subject of much speculation among researchers.
Stock, who now lives at Druid Stoke Bupa Care Home in Bristol, England, added that she had already seen the future Führer at the opera, sitting a few feet away from her.
“Once I went to the opera – I got tickets to school, it was in the royal box,” Stock continued. “I was very happy.” I arrived in the evening and there were SS people saying: “You cannot come in here – go two boxes lower”. As the curtain rose, I looked at the royal box – and there was Hitler sitting there. ”
The Schutzstaffel, otherwise known as the SS, was originally created as Adolf Hitler’s “personal bodyguard unit”, according to the US Holocaust Memorial Museum. However, under the leadership of Heinrich Himmler, the SS would later become the elite guard of the Nazis, as well as Hitler’s paramilitary organization, assuming security and surveillance tasks “regardless of legal restrictions”, he said. added the museum.
Although Stock and his family had little interaction with Hitler, there was a significant fear of him in the building, even though it was the start of his rise to power.

“We had a wonderful cook who was elderly and very Catholic – and very anti-Hitlerite,” Stock explained. “One time she went out and saw a picture of Hitler hanging on the wall and she said, ‘Yes, he should be hanged, you scoundrel – but not like that! “”
Stock responded by telling the cook, “’You will put us all in a concentration camp.’ ”
Decades later, Stock said she wouldn’t know what to say to Hitler, knowing what she now knows. “I wouldn’t want to talk to her because my feelings would be too strong – I couldn’t. ”
Hitler stayed in the building, which was also the birthplace of the Nazi Party, until 1934, when he became Chancellor and spent time in a villa near Berchtesgaden. He, however, retained ownership of the property, rarely visiting.
After years of speculation, a study was published in August 2019 suggesting that the Nazi leader’s grandfather was Jewish.
Research published in May 2018 confirmed that Hitler died during World War II, despite rumors to the contrary.
