I know it's been discussed almost as many times as 9/11.
But when I saw the article was published on the 19 June, I thought that most of it was new.
Again, my apologies.
I did just finish watching 'The Greatest Story Never Told' last weekend, so I was suckered in straight away.
Have a great weekend all and thanks for reading!

I find it kinda hard to believe that a guy with a serious screw loose and plans for world domination gives up and wakes up every day thinking "I best check on my potatoes to make sure they're coming in nicely! I wonder what the Lopezes are up to today? Perhaps I'll buy a guard sheep for my garden later this week" and all the other mundane things those of us who aren't trying to conquer the world spend our time thinking about.
I mean...I suppose it's possible, it's just kinda hard to believe for me.

No but HE sure lost the war effort with his ideas and killing the JEWS was a HUGE mistake that cost him man power and loyalty issues.

His biggest mistake was when he decided to take the bait from western powers and invade Poland. Hitler never did want to go to war in the first place.
Also, at no point was it his goal to kill all of the Jews.
By 1943 the extermination of European Jewry was taking place. The necessity of murdering women and children was explicitly addressed by Heinrich Himmler in two speeches made to the Nazi Party leadership at Posen on October 4, 1943: In front of you here, I want to refer explicitly to a very serious matter...I mean here...the annihilation of the Jewish people... Most of you will know what it means when 100 corpses lie side by side, or 500 or 1,000... This page of glory in our history has never been written and will never be written... We had the moral right, we were obligated to our people to kill this people which wanted to kill us.
We were faced with the question: what about the women and children? – I decided to find a clear solution to this problem too. I did not consider myself justified to exterminate the men – in other words, to kill them or have them killed and allow the avengers of our sons and grandsons in the form of their children to grow up. The difficult decision had to be made to have this people disappear from the earth. For the organisation which had to execute this task, it was the most difficult which we had ever had. [...] I felt obliged to you, as the most superior dignitary, as the most superior dignitary of the party, this political order, this political instrument of the Führer, to also speak about this question quite openly and to say how it has been. The Jewish question in the countries that we occupy will be solved by the end of this year. Only remainders of odd Jews that managed to find hiding places will be left over.
That Hitler would have escaped, and lived a relatively quiet life after the war should be no surprise to anyone. I suspect he isn't the only public figure in history that has done so, with lots of help from those in the position to do so.
Until now. In the wake of new revelations, the histories of Hitler's death may need to be rewritten – and left open-ended. American researchers claim to have demonstrated that the skull fragment, secretly preserved for decades by Soviet intelligence, belonged to a woman under 40, whose identity is unknown. DNA analyses performed on the bone, now held by the Russian State Archive in Moscow, have been processed at the genetics lab of the University of Connecticut. The results, broadcast in the US by a History Channel documentary, Hitler's Escape, astonished scientists.
