Wolf Rüdiger Hess

Wolf Rüdiger Hess

Wolf Rüdiger Hess ("Heß" in German) (November 18, 1937 – October 24, 2001) was the son of Rudolf Hess. An admirer of Adolf Hitler and a fixture of the post-war German far-right, he was also an outspoken critic of the investigation of his father's 1987 death. Wolf Hess maintained to his dying day that the British SAS murdered his father to prevent his parole (which many thought was imminent). Wolf was sure that the murder was committed because the British were afraid that his father would reveal embarrassing information about British actions during the war, if he was allowed to speak freely. However, this position is rebutted by the release, in 2007, of documents demonstrating British support for Hess' release on humanitarian reasons and their campaign against steadfast Soviet opposition to his release.

His father's long solitary imprisonment deeply embittered him, and he was further angered by what he thought was a cover-up.

Because of the difficulty his parents had in conceiving a child, when Wolf was born, every Gauleiter was instructed to send to Rudolf and Ilse a small amount of earth from each Gau (district). The earth was spread beneath a cradle, so that Wolf would symbolically begin his life on the whole of German soil.

In addition to his career as an architect, Wolf wrote two books: "My Father Rudolf Hess" (1986), followed by "Who Murdered My Father, Rudolf Hess?"

Until his death, he was head of the "Rudolf-Heß-Gesellschaft e.V.".

He left behind a widow (Andrea Hess) and a son (Wolf Andreas Hess). He also had two daughters.
