obviously i know who he is. but i wanted to know a few opinions on him for starters hes probably the most famous person in the world. 60 years since he died and people are still talking about him. he rebuilt germany after the first world war. and of course he killed millions of people in the worlds most notorious genocide. i dont support hitler or anything dont label me a nazi i just want to know.

a combination of lunacy, hate and power that produced evil. however one of the things about that time that i find scariest was how people that in another time or places would have just been normal participated in the holocaust. in another time or place hitler maybe wouldn't have been able to initiate atrocities but i don't think he would have been in any way normal. but people like those you see everyday - it's terrifying to realise what average people can be capable of.

hope it's clear that i'm not saying hitler was average, unless of course you live in a town populated exclusively with evil lunatics

no i live in a town full of people who think they are lunatics who are really cute little kittens. to summarize he is the collection of evil that created a perfect storm. thank you for the comment
