A man who claims to have been a Hitler drinker says he was in the habit of drinking water from an empty bottle in the German town of Rottnest in the 1920s and 1930s.
http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/people-drinking-water-hitlers-drinkers-source-11451790.html?storyId=13147918 The man, who is not named in the story but is described as “very tall and muscular”, told the Sunday Times newspaper in a report on his claims that he was a member of the Nazi party and drank water from the empty bottle.
He said he had been drinking the water from “some old bottle, just like everyone else” since the mid-1930s.
He claimed to have witnessed Hitler being driven to his home by the police.

I went in to the hospital and they told me that my stomach was filled with blood, that there was a lot of bleeding.
I asked for a doctor, and when I saw him, he said ‘there’s nothing wrong, just a bit of a headache, don’t worry’.”
The man, identified as Hans Wolff, said he was at the home of an elderly man in Rottnamest on January 15, 1931.
The elderly man, whose name has not been released, told the paper that he had no idea why he had had a taste of Hitler’s blood in his mouth.
He said that he could not understand why people would drink the water, but that he did.
He told the newspaper that he would not drink it again.

In the UK, water has been given to people as part of a voluntary scheme.
The water is also given to the elderly who are prone to thirst and have not been able to drink enough water to sustain themselves.
The BBC’s World Service has reached out to Wolff for comment, but has not received a response.
In 2013, a British-born German woman called Michael Tietz was arrested for allegedly being a Hitler drinking water drinker.
In a BBC documentary about the case, the man who says he drank Hitler’s water said he would never drink it.
The German journalist who produced the documentary said he knew of at least three other individuals who drank water taken from Hitler’s empty bottle, including one who said he could drink it every day.
“If he (Hitler) drank water, that would be the way he would drink it,” the German journalist told the BBC.
“I think I would not have a problem with that.
But I think that he wouldn’t drink water from it.”
