German SS Major General and Adjutant to German Dictator Adolf Hitler. Born in Munich, Germany, he joined the Nazi Party in October of 1920, as its 81st member. In November 1923, he participated in the Munich Putsch, Hitler's failed attempt to take power in Bavaria (when the Nazi Party later came to power, they awarded the Blood Order to each participant in the Munich Putsch, it becomes one of the Nazi Party's top awards). As a personal Aide to SA Group Leader Wilhelm Brückner, Schaub had access to the early years of the Nazi Party hierarchy, and especially to Adolf Hitler. Brückner became Adjutant to Hitler in 1930, but ten years later, in October 1940, he was fired for having an argument with Hitler's house manager, Kannenberg. After Brückner's dismissal from the Nazi inner circle, Brückner's aide, Julius Schaub, was appointed to become Hitler's personal Adjutant. While highly intelligent and extremely loyal to Hitler and the principles of the Nazi Party, Schaub was never considered an intellectual, and most of the Nazi's top inner circle thought that they could control him. But his devoted loyalty to Hitler assured him his position, and it is from him that much of the knowledge of Hitler's psychological condition during the last years of World War II is known. Schaub also provided much information of the inner workings of the top leaders of the Nazi Party during the war years. On April 22, 1945, Hitler ordered Schaub to leave the Berlin bunker and go to Hitler's home in Obersalzberg to destroy all of Hitler's personal records and documents, an order he obeyed. At the end of the war, Schaub was arrested by the American Army near Berchtesgaden, and was interned until 1949. During this time, he was investigated for war crimes, but was never taken to trail since he never actually participated in any war crimes, and eventually he was released. After his release, he operated a pharmacy in Munich, until his death in 1967.
