I am a nephew of Fritz Darges. Uncle Fritz is well. I have visited him last week. Here is an actual photo of him.

The memoirs of the last SS adjutant to Adolf Hitler are to be published in a move historians say could cast away the last shred of doubt over his personal involvement in the Holocaust.

Adolf Hitler with Fritz Darges Photo: WALTER FRENZ
During a strategy conference a fly began buzzing around the room, landing on Hitler's shoulder and on the surface of a map several times.
Irritated, Hitler ordered Darges to "dispatch the nuisance". Darges suggested whimsically that, as it was an "airborne pest" the job should go to the Luftwaffe adjutant, Nicolaus von Below.
Enraged, Hitler dismissed Darges on the spot. "You're for the eastern front!" he yelled. And so he was sent into combat.
Fritz Darges did not recall the story like that. Rochus Misch is the source for this claim, since he said so in his book, but not Darges.
Darges just pretend that he was unable to chase the flies away... and so he was dismissed.
So, in Darges' version he didnt say anything wrong.

As Darges remembers shortly before his death, he should chase away the annoying flies at the dictator's command, but he missed this command through inattentiveness. Thereupon, according to the Altmarker later in his memoirs, Hitler got one of his dreaded fits of rage. Conclusion: Darges received his marching order to the front exactly one day before the Stauffenberg attack. He had to report to his regiment on Hitler's instructions. When the Stauffenberg bomb went off the following day at the Führer headquarters, Friedrich Darges was already in the cinema in Berlin. His aide-de-camp died in the explosion. Darges, however, survived the war and turned 96. He died on October 25, 2009 in Celle.
