When Falls the Coliseum » Requiem For A Hitler

May 17, 2012

“…he played Hitler in a movie in which the Fuhrer had survived the war and was running a restaurant in Kazakhstan, playing the accordion for customers while Eva Braun danced.”

Very odd story of a Russian Hitler impersonator. I’m writing about the accordion in World War II, but I’m not sure this will make the book (that’s the only accordion reference).

He “…had to scrape by on the money he made posing for photographs on Red Square.”

“On New Year’s Eve Shishkin broke an arm and a leg. No source I have found explains how this happened. His suffering lasted three months before he died from “complications.” It was a bad death after a difficult, yet interesting life.”
