There were multiple reports of Adolf still alive after the war. One theory is that the Nazis didn't want to believe their glorious empire had fallen,
since it all rested on Hitler's shoulders. He made the mistake of creating a national delusion that he would bring in the Thousand Year Plan, Germany
would conquer its enemies, and the new race would rise from the ashes of war...if Germany won the war.
Hitler's suicide was, to put some purple prose on it, like God eating a bullet. If Hitler had said, "Whatever happens to me, Germany can still rise to
fulfill its destiny," then the Nazis might have been inspired to continue fighting. Instead, Hitler caused the Nazis to believe he was their god, for
all intents and purposes. If he died before the war was won, Germany would die with him. There were massive efforts to debunk rumors of his
Unlike the previous attempts on his life, however, no one could produce Hitler. His voice was well known. He made certain people would see his face
after attempts on his life. None of that happened after 30 April 1945, however. Rumors began to circulate that Hitler had perhaps been badly wounded
or gone into hiding, that he would rise again when the Allies had retreated. The fact no one could produce his body fueled the rumors.
Hitler caused a shift in the mindset of Germany. Prior to his campaign, the Jews were an accepted part of life. Love them or hate them, they're there,
and Germany's problems were caused by who knows what. Then Hitler gave the Jews to Germany as its scapegoat, and suddenly it was national policy and
patriotic to despise the Jews. Not just some of them, but all of them. "If you love Germany, you hate the Jews."
Germany then entered a bloody, vicious war, in part to defend their national identity--in which anti-Semitism played a role. If you've bought into
that identity and spent years killing people to defend it, sent your brothers and fathers and sons to die for it, then what happens when the rug gets
pulled out in spectacular fashion from under you? You become lost and desperate, and suddenly the full weight of what you've done falls on you.
If Nazi Germany prevailed, it would be a testament to the righteousness of their cause. "Might makes right." If Nazi Germany failed, then anyone
involved is just a war criminal on an apoplectic scale. If I was one of those, I wouldn't want to believe Hitler had died. If that's true, then I'm
guilty of so much, and the world would not easily forgive. It's true that the end of the war brought many to their senses, and many were overwhelmed
by what they'd done.
So the theory goes, at least. If you're a servant of a god, the last thing you want to acknowledge is that your god took himself out. I don't recall
Hitler ever saying he was a god, but he was certainly revered as one.
