    They had the plans and that's enough reason to have ground them in the dirt, as far as I am concerned.

    He had to be stopped of course; and I think it ironic (and proper) that some of the greatest scientific minds of the day - like Oppenheimer - were Jewish. Early on in Hitler's path to aggression, Germany lacked sufficient military strength to employ force in answer to force; but he met with none.

    In the book Adolph Hitler by John Toland; he reportedly said that if anyone had forcibly opposed his re-militarization of the Rhineland and his violation of the treaties signed at the end of WWI; he would have had no choice but to back down.

    Unbelievable, there are apologists for the Nazis; the absolute filth of humanity.

    Well, It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time...

    Or, "This may be the best mistake we'll ever make"...

    An Indonesian museum has taken down a popular exhibit that allowed visitors to pose with a life-sized wax figure of Adolph Hitler standing in front of the gates to Auschwitz.

    It was apparently popular with tourists - including school children - who could pose for photos and selfies with the "sure-footed" dictator:

    In a completely unanticipated and unforeseeable development, the Jewish human rights organization, the Simon Wiesenthal Center, criticized the display resulting in it's removal.

    Well now, that brings poor taste to an entirely new level.

    I could see this happening in a few South American Countries, In Indonesia? That's a bit of a surprise. The selfy thingy doesn't surprise me anymore. All this time I thought the last thing he ate was a bullet.

    This is unrelated to the most recent link, but I highly, highly recommend the German film "Downfall" for an excellent, historically accurate portrayal of the last weeks of Hitler and the Third Reich. I generally don't like war movies, but this one was fascinating and horrific. The acting is uncanny, right down to Goebbel's limp. It's on Netflix.

    That's interesting.
    I'm guessing he probably didn't have a real big appetite right about then anyway.

    I'm not that surprised. There was a report a while back about tourists taking selfies when they visited Auschwitz with some even making jokes about being baked where the people were gassed. There was also an artist who did a project of selfies taken in idiotic poses from people who visited the Holocause memorial in Berlin and pasted them onto actual pictures of the victims to shame them for showing no respect.

    Dozens of teens, Asian and otherwise, did the selfies and poses when I was at the USS Arizona Memorial in Pearl Harbor in 2010.
    I guess it's a generational thing?

    Wow - I'm sure that any of those people who see their pics in that context will gain a different point of view about it.

    That's probably part of it.
    I suspect that most of them don't intend any disrespect; they are just so far removed from the events being commemorated that they don't understand the solemn nature of the places.

    Then again, some probably wouldn't care.
