Found the wikipedia article on Weber (see below - you have to click on the top "did you mean christian weber nazi" to open the file)...it also reports him having been killed "by insurrectionists" during the Bavarian "uprising". Their source is Schwarzwaller's "Unkown Hitler" (I wonder what HIS source was?). One wonders where these rumours originated yet they certainly stick over the years. There are so many myths to be disentangled. I find it interesting that he died in an automobile accident after having been captured. It would be nice to see a newspaper clipping, magazine article, or report stating such.

Gentlemen as ever your insight is indispensable. I may never have to buy another book on the Third Reich again thanks to these informative forums haha :) :)

Weber was arrested by the members of Freiheitsaktion Bayern during the short-lived insurrection of April 1945, but came to no harm from them whatsoever, and was quickly freed after the action collapsed...

Excerpt from "I Knew Hitler" by Kurt G W Ludecke. Passage is on Christian Weber (pgs. 94-95):

"Weber was one of the Party's original members, and among its most effective bouncers. A former horse-trader, a typical Munich roughneck, good hearted and naive, but of colassal nerve and strength in the Nazi cause, he was usually at Hitler's side when the air was thick and special protection was necessary. He was an immense mountain of a man, almost broader than tall, an extraordinary sight when he wore leather shorts and a Tyrolean hat sporting a dashing chamois tuft. His face was adorned by an immense Kaiser mustache and he fancied himself as a lady-killer. But his social life consisted chiefly in drinking endless seidel's of beer when someone would stand treat."

On having lunch with Göring in Salzburg (pgs. 179-180):

"The day of my departure we lunched together. His mind was focussed on the food, which he ordered in enormous portions and stowed away methodically, easing it down with long draughts of wine. At one moment during this stuffing performance, Frau Göring was called from the table, leaving us alone. The captain's jaws still moved up and down, but I saw an expression of pleasant anticipation come into his eyes. Then he shifted his bulk in the chair, lifted one buttock, and gave vent to a thunderous explosion. "You'll pardon me won't you?" he asked, seeing my startled frown-and a second voley followed the first. On reflection, I decided to credit him with some delicacy. Who would have expected him to wait until his wife was out of range?"
