The question I find more important than why he kept his hand behind his back some times or why he bathed only when alone is, why did he try to eliminate the Jewish people....
From 1942, the Nazi leader Adolf Hitler received daily injections of methamphetamine from his personal physician, Dr Theodor Morell.

If you were in Nazi Germany in those days I guess so. It is a well known fact that Hermann Goerring was a morphine addict.
Also I have read that the Nazi Doctors would dose up the crews of their long range bomber flights. They had the crewmen on those flights so whacked out that the gunners, etc, would be in their underwear and sweating, tweaking their balls off at 30,000 feet in freezing conditions.

Loads of people are weird and twisted. Once you get into the secret societies and get nearer to the top, you get weirder and weirder, you really do.
They believe they are gods on earth, and there is alot of people like this on earth today, just you never hear about it.
Franz Wertheim, a medical officer who was sent to a small village near the Western Wall on May 10, 1940, wrote the following account: "To help pass the time, we doctors experimented on ourselves. We would begin the day by drinking a water glass of cognac and taking two injections of morphine. We found coc aine to be useful at midday, and in the evening we would occasionally take Hyoskin," an alkaloid derived from some varieties of the nightshade plant that is used as a medication. Wertheim adds: "As a result, we were not always fully in command of our senses."
The Nazis preached abstinence in the name of promoting national health. But when it came to fighting their Blitzkrieg, they had no qualms about pumping their soldiers full of drugs and alcohol. Speed was the drug of choice, but many others became addicted to morphine and alcohol....Pervitin, a stimulant commonly known as speed today, was the German army's -- the Wehrmacht's -- wonder drug.
Many of the Wehrmacht's soldiers were high on Pervitin when they went into battle, especially against Poland and France -- in a Blitzkrieg fueled by speed. The German military was supplied with millions of methamphetamine tablets during the first half of 1940. The drugs were part of a plan to help pilots, sailors and infantry troops become capable of superhuman performance. The military leadership liberally dispensed such stimulants, but also alcohol and opiates, as long as it believed drugging and intoxicating troops could help it achieve victory over the Allies.
After a while, soldiers developed a tolerance to Pervitin. The German army demanded pharmacologists come up with a new drug -- one that would not only improve endurance, but self-esteem as well. Sound impossible? No, it was called D-IX, and it consisted of:
...five milligrams of coc aine, three milligrams of Pervitin and five milligrams of Eukodal (a morphine-based painkiller). Nowadays, a drug dealer caught with this potent a drug would be sent to prison. At the time, however, the drug was tested on crew members working on the navy's smallest submarines, known as the "Seal" and the "Beaver."
