A Young Adolf Hitler

This really is Adolf Hitler.

Not very funny I know, but it is him all the same.
He sang in the choir too. Not at that age of course, but when he was just a bit older. And when his Granny died he always carried her picture with him from then on.

Funnily enough, it was on the BBC news today about his parent's grave having it's memorial stone removed because it was becomming a shrine to right-wing extremeists: BBC News - Adolf Hitler parents' tombstone in Austria removed

Has anyone else noticed that in recent weeks there has been quite a lot of Hitler programmes on the telly? Also an old friend brought around an old video he recorded of a 2 hour TV Hitler biography. Plus lovefilm -dot-com have been sugesting some Hitler titles too. Is there something in the air perhaps?

Now that is sort of disturbing. Anyway, I thought the real Hitler wasn't that interested in sex, seeing as he had only one ball. :?

I just think it`s odd that someone who fascinates so many people after all this time, should get such bad press.

Roald Dahl wrote an interesting story about young Adolf - his mother had lost three other children before he was born and the jist of the story is that she's terrified her new baby's (the story is set at his birth, you don't know who the baby is until later) going to die too. Her husband's a drunk and a bully and she's as scared of what he'll do if another baby dies and she is of her baby dying.

The whole idea of the story, of course, is that you feel sorry for her and really want the baby to survive then you find out who it is that's she's given birth to.

It's called Genesis and Catastrophe.

The concept behind Stephen Fry's 'Making History' was good, even if the book was pretty average. Time-travellers spike the water supply in Braunau am Inn with steriliser in 1888, so that Frau Hitler (amongst others) is rendered infertile. The trouble is that as history unfolds, the Nazi party gets taken over by someone who actually knows what he's doing. So the new Furher tones down the anti-Semitism, uses Jewish scientists like Albert Einstein to rearm the Reich, gets the A-bomb, wins the war and conquers Europe.

Then the Furher's scientists re-discover the case of mass infertility in Braunau back in the late 19th century, analysing the properties of a water sample collected fifty years ago. Shortly afterwards, the victorious Nazis gather up Europe's Jews into separate ghettos. There aren't any Einsatzgruppen, no crematoria, no gas chambers ... but the water's got a little extra something added to it.

A grim bit of alternative history.
