Guardian: Do you regret your role in the Third Reich? Or was this an exciting period for you?

...Misch was Hitler’s telephone operator and bodyguard, and today is the last surviving eyewitness to one of the most dramatic moments in history.
These days the former SS soldier lives just a few miles from his wartime bunker workplace, in a cosy wooden house with a well-kept lawn in the quiet neighbourhood of Rudow.
At the ripe old age of 88, Misch is still an imposing figure, with a steady handshake and good health.
Misch has lived in his little white house for the last 63 years, ever since he married his beloved Gerda in 1942 when the second world war was ravaging Europe and Nazi military power was at its peak. As a wedding gift from Hitler, he received a chest of fine champagne.
