Infamous Austrian German leader. He was supposedly measured at 173cm for a physical by Austrian Army.
Manfred Rommel (son of Field Marshal Erwin Rommel) that Hitler liked his father (who stood 5'6") because Hitler was a bit taller and could look him comfortably in the eye, unlike many of the other generals.
"Adolf Hitler", was 5'7" (170 cm) according to his Personalakten (military record). He once remarked, "If the recruiting standards were applied to me, even I couldn't join the SS!" There were different height requirements for the Waffen-SS, depending on the year and the type of regiment. The 1938 requirement of 6' was relaxed to 5'9" in 1940. Even then, smaller SS-Men could join the Pioniers (combat engineers) if they were 168 cm or taller. I have a book at home (_Wenn Alle Brueder Schweigen_)that contains a recruitment poster citing the various heights allowed in the Waffen-SS (Bodyguard, armored, signals, engineer).
Real height is what u get during 99% of day, morning height doesnt even last an hour, so Hitler was probably 5'8", but ive heard he actually was 5'7", although
he looked short because their soldiers were 5'10" on average.
He was certainly not short, watch this photo of the Munich agreement.
Significantlly taller than Daladier, taller than Mussolini, about the same height as Ciano and only Chamberlain is slightly taller.
He was taller than Goering and much taller than Göbbels.
Chaplin (who was 1.64)
Hitler was Austrian . Is there, or was there a difference between the average height for German men, and Austrians. He may be above average for Austrians at 5'8" and below average for Germans in the 30's and 40's.
average german man is 5´11
Certainly above 5'9, probably about 5'10 or 5'11. Himmler was 5'11 and Hitler was virtually the same height as him.
Hitler, Hess and Himmler were all tall men, above 5'10. Goebbels was short(5'6)
the minimum height to enter the SS was 5.9 because Heinrich Himmler was 5.9.
I didn't know that wonder if it is true?
Hitler's height is a matter of controversy. There are several sources:
Dr. Morell his private doctor said he was about 5 ft 7 in;
Dr. Wallace H. Graham (Harry Truman's doctor) who met Hitler several times said he was approximately 5 ft 8 in (about the same of Stalin, he adds);
Wallace Deuel in "People Under Hitler" quoted in the OSS dossier on Hitler says he was 5 ft 8 in or 9 in.
One thing is certain: he was taller than Martin Bormann (who was 5 ft 7 in), than Goering, than Mussolini, than Franco, seemed to be the same height of Himmler and Rommel and slightly shorter than Ribbentrop.
So, Hitler was not that short. Most reliable estimate was that he was 1.74 m. Only he was short-legged and that made him look shorter than he really was.
controversy? Why Height doesn't matter to an Aryan.
I Believe Hitler was 5'9.
