Hitler's Will

In conversation with Hermi Rothman

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Herman (Hermi) Rothman, part of the team that found and translated Hitler's political and personal will, is the last-surviving German-speaking interrogator who served in the British Army during the Second World War.

Sixty-five years after the suicide of Adolf Hitler and the end of the Second World War in Europe, Hermi will speak to author Helen Fry about his memories - from his evacuation as part of the Kindertransport in 1939 to giving testimony in the Frankfurt Auschwitz Trials of 1963.

One of the few signed copies of Hitler's political testament will be on display at Imperial War Museum London on the day of the talk and Terry Charman, Senior Historian at the Imperial War Museum, will give an introduction to the event.

Hermi Rothman will be signing copies of his new autobiography, Hitler's Will, in the museum bookshop after the talk.
