After Brückner’s dismissal from the Nazi inner circle, Brückner’s aide, Julius Schaub, was appointed to become Hitler’s personal Adjutant. While highly intelligent and extremely loyal to Hitler and the principles of the Nazi Party, Schaub was never considered an intellectual, and most of the Nazi’s top inner circle thought that they could control him. But his devoted loyalty to Hitler assured him his position and it is from him that much of the knowledge of Hitler’s psychological condition during the last years of World War II is known. Schaub also provided much information of the inner workings of the top leaders of the Nazi Party during the war years. On 22-04-1945, Hitler ordered Schaub to leave the Berlin bunker
and go to Hitler’s home in Obersalzberg to destroy all of Hitler’s personal records and documents, an order he obeyed. At the end of the war, Schaub was arrested by the American Army near Berchtesgaden, and was interned until 1949. During this time, he was investigated for war crimes, but was never taken to trail since he never actually participated in any war crimes, and eventually he was released.
