Former aide to Hitler dies at 93
by UPI

MUNICH – Baron Bernd Freytag von Loringhoven, who was with Adolf Hitler just before the German dictator died at the end of World War II, has died in Munich at age 93.

Von Loringhoven, who escaped Hitler's bunker with the dictator's permission one day before Hitler shot himself, died in February, The New York Times reported.

After the war, von Loringhoven spent two and a half years as a British prisoner of war. Later, he reportedly gave eerie accounts of his days in the bunker, where lights flickered with every bomb from above.

Von Loringhoven also advised many filmmakers and journalists with his accounts, the Times reported.

During the war, von Loringhoven's job was to gather military data, compose maps and then present them to Hitler.

Von Loringhoven was born in 1914 on what is now the Estonian island of Saaremaa.
