My point is if you were taught one false thing it's reasonable you were taught others. There was clearly little fact checking.

Brown eyes. I remember thinking it was strange that the Nazis and Hitler endorsed the Aryan "superior" race (Blue eyes, blond hair, bloodline, etc.) and the fact that he had DARK hair and BROWN eyes, and I clearly recall that he was part jew. I think it is likely that the teacher just assumed that he had blue eyes because of the Aryan endorsement that they were known for.

Because I have always been told that Hitler had brown eyes, hence all that "Its so ironic that Hitler wanted to kill all them jews, because he was 1/8 jew himself, brown hair and Brown Eyes.". I clearly remember Mr. Hitler with brown eyes (the rare color photo with Hitler) and I was always told that Hitler had brown eyes.
Goebbels described one of his first meetings with Adolf Hitler in the diaries he kept: Shakes my hand. Like an old friend. And those big blue eyes. Like stars. He is glad to see me. I am in heaven. That man has everything to be king.
Leon Degrelle in his article “The Enigma of Hitler” (The Journal of Historical Review): Hitler had deep blue eyes that many found bewitching, although I did not find them so. Nor did I detect the electric current his hands were said to give off. I gripped them quite a few times and was never struck by his lightning.
Sefton Delmer of the Daily Express wrote on February 23rd, 1933: By a detour we next reached a part of the building which was actually in flames. Firemen were pouring water into the red mass. Hitler watched them for a few moments, a savage fury blazing from his pale blue eyes.
Karl Ludecke, who published a book called “I knew Hitler”, wrote the following about the first time that he heard Hitler speak: Hitler was a slight, pale man with brown hair parted to one side. He had steel-blue eyes…he had the look of a fanatic…he held the audience, and me with them, under a hypnotic spell by the sheer force of his conviction.
