. . .With Alois, Jr., gone from home, it was Adolf who bore the brunt of the father's discipline. It was he, recalled [half-sister] Paula Hitler, "who challenged my father to extreme harshness and who got his sound thrashing every day." . . .
Years later [Adolf] told one of his secretaries that he had read in an adventure novel that it was proof of courage to show no pain. "I then resolved never again to cry when my father whipped me. A few days later I had the opportunity of putting my will to the test. My mother, frightened, took refuge in front of the door. As for me, I counted silently the blows of the stick which lashed my rear end." From that day on, so Hitler claimed, his father never touched him again. . .
