Unbelievable, especially considering that he wrote Mein Kampf during this time. Where did you find this?
I am a bit behind with reading the papers.
Seriously, I found it on Twitter. The account was @HistoryInPics.
Thanks, I’ll have to look it up. I’m actually taking a History of Nazi Germany class this semester so its very timely.
Oh, feel free to contact me with any questions that you might have, either here, so that others can benefit from the answers as well: http://www.allexperts.com/ep/141-123218/Germany/Andreas-Moser.htm ; or by e-mail and maybe I can make something for my blog out of it.
It’s one of the eras of German history which I have been studying most deeply.
I don’t really have any questions, but thanks. One of the most baffling things I’ve learned from this class is that while gays were sent to the camps after the Night of the Long Knives those in theater, choreography, and related fields were spared.
If it were so I would have had grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. History is such a hard teacher sometimes!
I am not sure if too much should be attributed to Hitler. Germany in the 1930s was a militaristic, anti-Semitic society in substantial parts. We should not forget that Hitler’s party was elected. If he hadn’t shown up, somebody else would have, and indeed there were several other anti-Semitic, racist and expansionist parties and organizations competing for votes.
And I do need to point out – although I am almost certain that it is inappropriate to use your personal family history to do so – that everyone had grandparents. Without grandparents, we wouldn’t be here. In almost all cases, we have even four of them. It’s a matter of logic.
Not all of us got to know (all of) our grandparents in person of course.
