**...Hitler met a professional street person named Reinhold Hanisch** who went by the name of Walter Fritz.
Hanisch is a very creditable source. His account about Hitler is, with few exceptions, honest and straightforward; yet, it is ignored or glossed over by most historians. In fact, after writing his account, Hanisch stayed in Austria even after Hitler's armies marched in, believing he had nothing to worry about since he had been, for the most part, truthful. He did not understand that by that time, Hitler was building a myth around himself. Hanisch would disappear in one of Hitler's concentration camps.
