    Hitler suffers from a very biased press. But scholars is looking deeper and deeper.
    And some of the study results are quite interesting. Do your own research. Also,
    google, "historical revisionism, holocaust".

    Re: Which are worse for you? Nazis or Communists?

    Nazism and Soviet or Chinese communism are merely more technologically advanced versions of the totalitarian military dictatorships that have appeared continuously throughout human history. They aren't that different from each other, nor were they different from many manifestations of feudalism or imperialism. The result is the same, a few powerful people competing for supremacy, and the overriding use of power being devoted merely to obtaining and securing more power for the powerful, and everyone else is subjugated, dominated, and caught in the perpetual crossfire. The Nazis did it. The Soviets did it. The Romans did it. Much of European history is devoted to people doing it. Much of Chinese history is devoted to people doing it. Much Middle Eastern history is devoted to people doing it.

    All that said, it is a terrible shame what 20th century communists did to tarnish socialist ideals.

    Nazism. I'm Jewish, and their antagonism toward Jews was a bit more proactive.

    Me? Nazis without a doubt.
    If you ask me to chose between Nazi Germany and certain examples of Communism, such as the USSR under Stalin or Cambodia and the Khmer Rouge, it's really hard to chose -- similar death count, similar disregard for human dignity, similar kind of totalitarian rule.

    But I chose Nazis, because there were/are also examples for communist regimes that are bad, but not as bad as Nazi Germany. For example, communist East Germany (1949-89) was bad, but magnitudes better than Nazi Germany, by far not as murderous and rather authoritarian than totalitarian. Or socialist Cuba. Or Yugoslavia.

    Hmmm, I wonder which scholars those might be. Challenging received wisdom, even on a topic as toxic as the Holocaust is one thing, but no amount of revision will reform the evil of Hitler. I think that anyone who has studied history properly and objectively would concur.

    Agree 100%. To that list you could add Vietnam, Allende's Chile, socialist Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador and Nicaragua. All had/have many faults, but we're not in the same league as Nazi Germany, Stalinist USSR or Maoist China.

    Communists and Nazis are both hardcore leftist totalitarians and just plain evil.

    Nazis mainly because racism is a central tenant to the ideology.
