He even got his own unit of measurement

I agree with the overall message, but the fact that he stated "I'm Jewish, so I'm perfectly capable of understanding that what he did" is a little maddening. Just because you're affiliated with the victimized group doesn't mean you can, by association, grasp a genocide. Wellimnotsure is right when he says that he's "lowballing the **** out of that number". Try closer to 11 million deaths.

It kind of upsets me when people think only jews were killed.. Many people know gypsies and gays were amoungst these numbers as well, but people seem to over look how many christians were killed. Hitler tried to remove pretty much everything but a very small margin of people.

the rough breakdown (no one knows the exact number)...

~5-6million jews
~2million polish
~750k serbians
~500k gypsies
~250k disabled people (variable race/religion)
~150k freemasons
~100k communists (variable race/religion)
~15k homosexuals
~2000 jehova's witnesses
those were people specifically targetted

people not specifically targetted but still killed, all of variable race/religion, were roughly
~4-6 million Slavic peoples
~3-4 million soviet PoWs
~1.25 million political dissidents

Had the same argument with my mother once, she's hyper-religious and even more close minded. She refused to believe Christians do anything wrong. When I bring up Hitler being a Christian, she said, "No Christian would ever do those things, he was not a real Christian. I personally believe he was demon possessed." **** got me heated to say the least. I tell her about the great things he did for his country, (Not the Holocaust, the autobahn) and how he thought he was legitimately trying to help his struggling country and he was in fact ELECTED by over 30% of the vote. She again claims that it was Satan trying to wipe out the Jews and ignored both facts I brought up, just kept ranting about how he was possessed. Just needed to vent that entire asinine conversation from my brain.

Why is it that when Joshua kills the men, women, and children of Canaan - amounting to genocide - he is righteously just in the eyes of Jews, yet when Hitler did it elsewhere he is depicted as one of, if not the, most monstrous people in history?

Is the difference a matter of technology, or efficiency? Both? It can't be that "god told Joshua to do it" - Hitler often claimed to be influenced or protected by Providence, which is basically the same thing.

Didn't he apply to an art school but get rejected?
#46 to #42 - stave (08/24/2013) [-]
Yes he did, the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts or something like that and got shot down twice. The second time they didn't even let him take the entrance exam I believe.

Don't get me wrong, but Hitler was a noob if we compare him with Stalin in mass murdering.

off-topic: A little known fact is that SS officers were trained by NKVD officers HOW to build concentration camps.

Stalin was fairly lucky to get away with what he did when the whole world obsessed over Hitler and how Russia was imperative in taking over Berlin and winning the war and stuff.

It's stories like his that make me enjoy history just a little bit more.

I mean, yes he did some of the most terrible things in that decade, and that entire century everything went to **** , but the things were truly terrific and horrifying at the same time. I mean, two world wars, Stalin, at least 50 conflicts and wars, industrialization of a third of the entire world world- so much grief, pain and suffering wrapped in so many good things, like placing a man on the moon and curing many otherwise fatal diseases.

I must say though that the stories of Hitler and Stalin are truly impressive among everything else that was going on at the time.

So you're saying he wasn't a monster...he was just ahead of the curve
#176 - verby (08/25/2013) [-]
Well, Hitler was ******* insane. Very little, if any humanity was visible in him.
Stalin, on the other hand, is ******* terrifyingly human

Really... You are all saying that he didn't do anything wrong and that he was just being human. He killed 6 million jewish people in the name of good, but that doesn't make him unresponsible for doing what he did. People do unforgivable things in the name of good all the time. That doesn't make it ok to do. I hate the people in this post because they all act like he's ******* normal. Does a normal person kill people just because he doesn't like them. No... they don't. So, that's the end of my rant.

What politicians and news reporters ignore is that Hitler was a politician. He is not much different than many of our leaders. Overly militaristic sentiment, doing good deeds in photos, using connections to get ahead, and making friends through being friendly to other leaders or important persons to gain their support in front of the media. He is a politician like George Bush and Obama, just sadistic.

I thought the last comment would've been saying the picture was a still from a movie or something.
