Albert Speer Differing Historical Interpretations

Czar Nicholas Ii Anti Semitism
1,634 wordsA major problem in understanding World War II is dealing with its ironies.

Germans hailed Adolf Hitler as the greatest German in history; but had Otto von Bismarck rather than Hitler ruled the Third Reich, there would probably not have been a Holocaust and a German Century might have begun after the French collapse, in 1940. Instead, N...

The answer to that question is no, at least not presently. Historians searching for answers to the question of how the murder of a nation came about are often l...
