As von Ribbentrop was soon after the war started not very popular at Hitler´s bunker von Ribbentrop put Mr Walter Hewel there instead.

"HEWEL, Walter, Representative of the Reich Foreign Minister on the staff of the Führer "

as it says his postion.

I also read on him that he was the man who read the international news to Hitler every
morning(ish) ( about 11-12 am after Hitler woke up) and thus was an important person.( as he could decide which news would be read )

He tried to escape from the Bunker(after Fuhrer´s death) , but they could not get out of Berlin . So in order not to get prisoned by Russians and as well after making a promise to Hitler for committing suicide, he took poison and died on 2nd May 1945.

------

Anyway, this man seems to have had a close relationship with Hitler, yet not hated by Bormann (?).

And unfortunately not much info in the net. Does anyone have more on him in the books?
