Personal physician to the family of Adolf Hitler, who went on to become Germany's Fuhrer of the Third Reich. Former medical officer in the Austrian Army. Dr. Bloch was responsible for the care of Hitler's mother Klara Hitler and young Adolf at his practice in Linz, Austria. Nursed Hitler back to health in 1904 from a lung ailment after Hitler became seriously ill. Treated Hitler's mother, never charging for house calls or medications when she was dying of breast cancer. After Hitler's mother died, Hitler told Dr. Bloch "I shall be grateful to you forever." Called an 'Edeljude' noble Jew by Adolf Hitler, Dr. Bloch had a special fondness for the Hitler family. Hitler continued writing a warm correspondence with Dr. Bloch for the rest of his life. When his medical practice was closed by the Nazis on October 1, 1938, Dr. Bloch wrote to Hitler and received special protection by the Gestapo. Dr. Bloch, his wife Lilli, his daughter, and son-in-law and medical partner Dr. Franz Wren were allowed to emigrate to the United States just before Christmas in 1940. Interrogated by the Office of Strategic Services on his arrival, Dr. Bloch published his autobiography in Collier's Magazine in 1941. Dr. Bloch resided in the Bronx, dying of stomach cancer in 1945. (bio by: Robert)

You were probably a good doctor, but you had a lousy taste in patients. RIP Dr.
