Is it strange that i have an, what some would say an unhealthy addiction to reading autobiographies and biographies of ranking nazi officers. From Hitler himself down to labour camp guards. I must have a collection of 50 plus. I've even watched the triumph of the will more than 10 times as i find it...to a degee one of the best political speeches made...not the content but the way it was put across. I find the entire regime fascinating and also read books from each member at the Nuremberg trials. A trial that to this day i find... odd.

Is this unhealthy? I cant help but want to learn more abd more about these people

Not at all unhealthy. You should be commended for it. There is always something to learn from all humanity no matter how horrible their times were or what their involvement in the horror was.

You definitely should , there is no substitute for direct eyes on reality , most the pundits nowadays still don't realise they're being played by tricks that are very old hat .

@ OP it sounds like you're developing some expertise in your chosen subject . Could you please expand what your take is on the Nuremberg trials

You'd need only one cell, it'd be Hitler screaming, 'The Jooooooooos!!!!!!'.

Or maybe two, the second could be him destroying the Nazi regime by shooting himself in the head.

I think it is completely healthy, if not for the sake of enjoyment, than at least for the sake of knowing how the enemy thinks.

Yeah, unless your doing this to learn how to control a country worth of people, I don't think it is unhealthy. Don't college professors make good money knowing every angle of their subject?

I actually admire having that kind of focus on a subject.

I was looking to get my hands on Hitler’s TableTalks. Was he really candid about his Nazism? Or wa it more like Hitler talking about the day to day, such as gossip and women problems?

Its a book, or my like his personal journal with the time period.

Some are his personal thoughts, some are his thoughts during meeting etc. Its really interesting.

Example

Number 325

1943, dinner guest; Himmler

- goes on to speak about his meeting, thoughts, ideals of the meeting etc-


Now i think there is 352 entries. Some are a few lines. Some after big confrences goes on for pages.

I really enjoyed. I read it directly after Mein Kamph
