The reason that I am asking if American schools should teach anything about Hitler, and the history of Nazi Germany, is because I have just read a news article in which this question is discussed: http://www.wfmynews2.com/news/local/parents-upset-over-school-project-that-includes-dressing-up-like-hitler/384650275
Adolf Hitler is one of the most famous persons in History, if not THE most famous person in History. American students should know this about him:
Hitler killed 6 million Jews! or was it 1.5 million? Whatever the number, you can’t kill Jews and expect to be honored as an important person in history!
If you kill even one Jew, you will forever be hated and reviled the world over, until the end of time. The Jews will see to that!
The number one rule, in any country, is MUST LOVE JEWS!
Here’s my suggestion: I think that American students should be shown the famous movie made by Leni Riefenstahl, which is entitled “Triumph of the Will”. This is a movie about the rise of Hitler. Hint: Hitler was a self made man! He was born the lowest of the low, and rose to be the man most loved, and most hated, in history.
In this movie, students will see old film clips in which Hitler is shown being cheered by millions of people as he rides through the streets of Germany, with no protection from the crowds of people, who are cheering him and throwing flowers at this feet.
The sad truth is that Hitler was more loved, and more admired than any other man in history — until the Jews got their revenge and made him into the most hated man in the world.
Regular viewers of the History Channel will recognize the marble reviewing stand at the Zeppelin Field, shown in my photograph below:
This is the place where the Nazi swastika was blown up by the Allies in a symbolic display of victory over the Nazis on April 24, 1945.
The film clip of the dynamiting of the swastika has been shown thousands of time on American TV.
On the central promontory, which is the speaker’s stand, where Hitler used to give his speeches, you can still make out the faint outline of another swastika which was removed from the marble by the American military.
Inside the Golden Hall, at the Zeppelin Field, a gold mosaic swastika has been left on the ceiling as a grim reminder of Germany’s dark past.
