Yesterday, 20th March, in 1933 saw the first German concentration camp open at Dachau. Forget any miltary skills Hitler may or may not have had. Concentration camps and the extermination of people make him a monster
Hitler link alarms German resort
The German Baltic resort of Bad Doberan is to remove Hitler from its roll of honour before hosting the G8 summit.
One has to wonder why he was kept on the list for so long - Hitler sympathizers you think? You know, in the old days when a ruler, king or pontiff was conquered or dethroned by the enemy the first thing they would do is wipe the name of the leader form all the history books, buildings, and so forth. However, in this day and age people glorify the enemy and love killers as though they were angels of light.
Hitler once said, "How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don't think."
He saw Jews as the worst thing on Earth, is responsible for killing 6 million of them and now we found out he enjoyed the music of Jewish composers.
| BERLIN - A collection of recordings taken from Adolf Hitler's headquarters at the end of World War II includes works by Jewish musicians and Russian composers, according to a German magazine report.|
The weekly Der Spiegel said the daughter of a World War II Soviet military intelligence officer showed the magazine a collection of about 100 records her father took from the Reich chancellery in Berlin when the city fell to the Red Army in 1945.
Alongside predictable recordings, such as the overture to "The Flying Dutchman" by Hitler favorite Richard Wagner, the collection included works by composers from Russia, whose people were regarded as subhuman by Nazi ideologues, according to the report.
Among the works reportedly taken by Lev Bezymenski were an aria from Mussorgsky's "Boris Godunov," performed by Russian bass Fyodor Shalyapin, and an album of Tchaikovsky works featuring star violinist Bronislaw Huberman - a Polish Jew - as a soloist. Works by Rachmaninov and Borodin were also featured in the collection.
"I find this grotesque," Der Spiegel quoted Bezymenski's daughter, Alexandra Bezymenskaya, as saying. "Millions of Slavs and Jews had to die as a result of the Nazis' racial ideology...
He was a mad man, and possibly in this case a hypocrite. However, if he really was mad then I think every minute situation would be overlooked. The idea was just to exterminate the living 'sub humans', not necessarily their talent.
Yes Hitler was a madman but a very charismatic one. I think that is why his name remains in the history books and why he still has some who follow his ideals.
JDS_Forever mentions a fear of a simular power as the Nazis up rising I think might be worth a separate thread as she is right. Just might be shocking to see who does it.
Velleta you are absolutely right it was Hitlers abilities to do what he said he would that one over the masses that followed him to war. Leaders like this are few and far between and usually leave a large scar behind, and that same craze they have usually leads to the greed that eventually is their down fall. I just hope the next crazy leader is noted far sooner and plans put into action to counter them before a Third World war to end the earth arises.
