The Civil Writer Magazine Adolf Hitler was “a good patient,” according to his doctors. He was meticulously adherent to the regimen for his chronic sinusitis: cocaine in aerosol form. That was one of the anecdotes Jerrold M. Post, M.D. ’60, shared with a reunion audience on June 4 during his talk, “When Illness Strikes the Leader:

Hitler did have a secret, but it wasn't the killing of millions of Jews. Instead, it was a mix of cocaine, opioids, methamphetamine, barbiturates, steroids, sex hormones and an early form of OxyContin. Hitler in those last months of his life from all this and more had an irregular heartbeat during the last years of his life from symptoms of tertiary (late stage) syphilis, which would mean he had a syphilis infection for many years. Nobody knows whether Adolf Hitler repented and asked for forgiveness the last hours of his life. Adolf Hitler's religious beliefs have been a matter of debate; the wide consensus of historians consider him to have been irreligious,

anti-Christian, anti-clerical and scientistic. If he had repented his sins which the tenets of Christianity states “Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved” (Acts 16:31). Would he be saved but someone who lived a

socially acceptable life would be destined to hell for not believing in Jesus. Can this be an acceptable tenets of Christianity for repenting and forgiving regardless of the life someone led.
