Adolf Hitler's food taster: Woman, 95, reveals fear at testing the paranoid Fuhrer's meals during Second World War
Eating: Hitler with his mistress Eva Braun. Every meal the dictator had was tasted to make sure he was not poisoned
'It was all vegetarian, the most delicious fresh things, from asparagus to peppers and peas, served with rice, and salads. It was all arranged on one plate, just as it was served to him.'
Mrs Woelk, who was not required to taste meat or fish as the leader was a vegetarian, had to report every day, but was only used when Hitler's personal train was in the station. She said she had been rounded up by the SS because the Nazi leader wanted only 'good German stock' testing his food.
There was always an hour's delay before Hitler tucked into his meal so that any effects of the food on the women could be seen, she said.
Mrs Woelk told the Daily Express she and her husband had been 'just two people trying to survive' when the Nazis arrived, and that neither had been party members.
Despite coming to feel like a 'laboratory rabbit' Mrs Woelk said she quickly learned 'you didn't argue with the SS'.
Dining: Adolf Hitler sitting down with German officers in 1945
Feast: Hitler and his officers sit at a table laden with fresh fruit and vegetables before the warShe lived with her mother-in-law outside the HQ while she performed the bizarre role until the unsuccessful assassination attempt on Hitler's life by Claus von Stauffenberg with a briefcase bomb in July 1944.
From that moment she was confined to a school building and could only see her mother-in-law at weekends watched by the SS.
When Hitler abandoned the lair after 800 days in November 1944, a senior officer helped her escape back to Berlin by smuggling her on board Joseph Goebbels' train.
She believes the other tasters were shot by the advancing Russians.
While she escaped a similar fate, Mrs Woelk told the Daily Express she was forced to endure a devastating ordeal when she was raped by soldiers from the Red Army.
In 1946 she was eventually reunited with the husband she had presumed dead, and the couple lived together until Mr Woelk's death in 1990.

He has every dish inspected by a medically-qualified professional sampler, who makes sure that it is completely safe to eat.
The revelation about the 59-year-old former KGB agent was served up by Gilles Bragard, founder of an elite group of chefs who cook for the world’s most powerful men and women.
‘Tasters still exist but only in the Kremlin, where a doctor checks every dish with the chef,’ said Mr Bragard.
Speaking in Paris before a meeting of the ‘Club des Chefs des Chefs’ (Chiefs’ Chefs Club), Mr Bragard also revealed that American presidents often liked their food ‘security cleared’ before eating.
These included George Bush, who had two former FBI agents taste his every one of his dishes during a trip to London.
