London, Oct 9 (ANI): Adolf Hitler's dental fillings were made from gold torn from the mouths of Jews in Nazi concentration camps, reveals a new book on the German dictator.he revelation comes after a newly discovered document showed that Hitler's dentist had about 11lbs of dental gold from the concentration camps at his disposal for the treatment of senior Nazis.
The new book, titled 'Was Hitler Ill?' was co-authored by Henrik Eberle- a historian who has written several successful books on the Nazi leader and Hans-Joachim Neumann- a professor of medicine at Berlin's Charite University.
Eberle said that Hitler's dentist Hugo Blaschke had put 10 fillings in his mouth in 1944.
"The most likely place the gold came from is from the supply Blaschke had from the concentration camps," the Telegraph quoted Eberle as saying.
"Most of this came from Jews. Gold from other sources was very hard to find in Germany and that is why I believe that Hitler's fillings came from Jewish victims of the Nazis," he added.
It is known that the Nazis removed gold teeth and fillings from their concentration camp victims.
The new document is a 1941 letter from one of Blaschke's underlings to the office of SS commander Heinrich Himmler.
It states that Blaschke had 50 kilograms of dental gold enough to last for years. (ANI)
