When I was a kid and hadn't heard of Hitler or learned to recognize his face, a classmate of mine showed me a picture of a big group including him as a young man. (I think it must have been from either the closest German thing to "high school", or the art school he flunked out of.) He pointed to Hitler and said something about that guy in the picture being really evil. I thought it was somebody else, so I argued, saying that guy wasn't evil, he was just strict & stuffy, maybe occasionally "mean" at worst.

I wish I could also say that the other kid I was talking to also mentioned Hitler's name and I "corrected" him about that as well, because even the name has some similarity, but that didn't happen.

The guy I thought was in the picture was Higgins.

Hitler didn't flunk out of art school. He wasn't admitted to art school in the first place.

Hitler has always struck me as being exactly right guy, at the exactly right time w/ the exactly right lines of BS that gave Germany and Europe the exactly wrong things that they didn't need.Blaming Hitler simply allows people to have a single target on which to vent their rage and frustrations and does nothing to deal w/ the fact that millions of people did what he told them to do.

He didn't have any "magical powers" and I have always suspected that all of those terrible things done under Nazi rule were simply what the people that did them wanted to do. Hitler simply gave them the imprimatur to do.The trials Nuremberg should have gone on for more years than they did and many more Nazi's should have shared Goebbels and Keitel's fates.

The mustache did nothing to make the man more "impressive" and was probably grown by him to "spice up" his rather bland face.

Agreed on all counts.
Demonifying Hitler only serves to alleviate the guilt of his generation, to distance oneself from the possibility that one might just have played along in this system, if one had had the chance and sweeping the biggest issue under the rug: Not that one man lead, but that millions followed.

Actually, that animation is really cool for comparing facial features. I think it's interesting that Bush has such beady little eyes while Hitler's are big an intense. I always thought his eyes were one of H's most notable features--he looks like he means what he says in the deepest way possible, which can be absolutely terrifying.

Read Sebastian Haffner's "Defying Hitler: A Memoir", which gives an inside view of Germany's descent into madness. In retrospect, it seems unfathomable that people were taken in by nazism, but remember that it was a process stretched out over many years. It was very much a slippery slope.

With respect to the Hitler/Wittgenstein pics, I posted about this in a completely different thread. instead of repeating the post here, I'll simply link to the original post.
