What was the name of the psychiatrist who treated Hitler for his crisis of confidence and did he feel somewhat responsible for Hitler's subsequent behaviour?
#47088. Asked by gmackematix. (May 03 04 12:55 AM)
Dr Edmund Forster.
Forster used hypnosis to help Hitler face his fears. It is alleged that the radical therapy Hitler received galvanised him to the point where he felt driven to inflict his racist megalomania on the world.
An outspoken anti-Nazi who openly despised Hitler, Forster felt a deep sense of guilt over his unwitting role in the former patient’s rise to political triumph.
