    Re: What do you think of Hitler?

    No vote, as usual.
    Hitler was a hater, far too many Germans went along with this. He was a very small "man", rather than solving problems, he blamed others....nothing close to "great" about it...not him...
    We have similar problems in our nation today.

    I think the Nazi power structure is very misunderstood. There was more to it than Hitler being the evil leader with minions. Near the end he almost became a figure head that was important simply because his face led the nation. His commanders were running the war almost entirely.

    In post 29, who is that white haired individual?
    That Charlie Chapman film, The Great Dictator, a must see.
    Maybe too deep for some, still a most educational film.
    Whoever thought that the Hitler subject could trigger a humorous thread?

    No. Hitler wasn't misunderstood. He really was a little evil son of a bitch. What is misunderstood is the way the people bellow him worked.

    If not for Hitler, Europe would be speaking Russian now.....
    It almost happened twenty years earlier were it not for the Polish victory, "Miracle at the Vistula".....

    You're speaking about the military.
    Hitler did however control the nation, he was a dictator as you may remember and the policies his nation has taken were his policies, as planned in the Mein kampf book and in his pre-election and post-election speeches.

    That's absolute nonsense.
    The soviets were the winning side in WWII, not Hitler.
    It only strengthen them and their position as a world superpower, and one may say that this war has led to the cold war with America.

    Somehow I am not surprised that 4 of you think Hitler was a great guy.

    Re: What do you think of Hitler?

    Here is a poem for you 4 who think Hitler was a great guy who was simply misunderstood.

    Treblinka
    by David Graham 1995

    Europe's Young stir peacefully in sleep.
    After praying to God for their souls to keep.
    So tired after a sunny day of playing.
    Now tucked to bed warm, after on knees, praying.

    What a horrible thing - to awaken the next day.
    To realize these things are now taken away.
    Into ghettos they march - collective custody They lied.
    And in the distance, Treblinka's mouth is opening wide.

    Oh God in Heaven, show Us your great power!
    Why must these little Ones plunge from Life's Tower?
    To be rendered of their Souls by Treblinka's great might
    In yellow sand they are buried - day and night.

    Oh, Treblinka, Treblinka, Your jaws gape so wide -
    The young lambs herd in, unaware of what's inside.
    Run, little children...Run for your lives!
    You've been brought to The Slaughterhouse - where no one survives.

    It is easy to swallow these small ones whole -
    Efficiently you render body from soul.
    Straight from the trains - chased through your door...
    As Warsaw is emptied, you strain for more.

    Nothing stops you, Treblinka - hidden away in the woods.
    As your yellow sand turns red with blood.
    Is there anyone to stop this? Something must be done!
    If You are not stopped, there will remain not one.

    Treblinka you child-eater, your wheels spin and turn.
    Your gears well-oiled, while the human soup is churned
    A soup made of children who no longer run or play.
    A bloody soup that is dumped into yellow sand and clay.

    Dig pits in the sand - hidden beyond the trees -
    Treblinka exists only if no one sees.
    Covered over by Them, so that none would see The Place.
    To hide what was done - there is scarecly a trace.

    The Satanic Nazis smile, beckon & beguile.
    Why - it is not so hard to fool a young child!
    Could God really be giving these young ones up to die?
    Innocent teary eyes look to their parents & say "G'Bye"

    It would have been better had there never been a birth.
    For these innocent eyes will never see life's worth.
    Fate has chosen these little ones to die.
    Many today still ask, "Why?"

    We think it's all over - "...it is done, it is past"
    We want to believe the children screamed their last.
    But listen close, and you will hear the sound,
    Of Treblinka's faint heartbeat, below the yellow ground.

    In our weakness we call the madmen Them and They.
    Are our souls so different & brave - that we'd have stood in the way?
    So exalt not my friend, in a self-glorified stand....
    For Treblinka sprang forth from the heart and mind of Man.
