    Thomas Mann's War Against Hitler

    IN FEBRUARY 1938, Thomas Mann and his family sailed from Cherbourg, France to New York, where they were greeted by a throng of reporters and a film crew from the Paramount News Corporation. Mann, who had won the Nobel Prize in 1929 and appeared on the cover of Time in 1934, decried British prime minister Neville Chamberlain’s policy of appeasement and correctly predicted that Hitler would annex Austria forthwith. Later that day, Mann, after being asked whether he found exile a lonely state of affairs, responded,

    'Hitler paintings' fail to sell at auction

    Five pictures said to have been painted by Nazi leader Adolf Hitler have failed to sell at auction in Germany.

The auction was held in Nuremburg, the German city once notorious for Hitler's mass rallies where leading Nazis were later tried for war crimes. Accusations of forgery marred the auction and city mayor Ulrich Maly described it as being in "bad taste".

    Hitler may have escaped Germany for South America, say CIA memos from the JFK files

    It’s regarded as a historical fact that Adolf Hitler killed himself on April 30, 1945, when it became increasingly clear that Nazi Germany would fall to Allied forces. But a handful of recently-declassified CIA documents, unveiled with the highly anticipated JFK files last week, show that the Central Intelligence Agency was investigating whether Hitler escaped from Europe and was hiding in Colombia in 1954.

    Hitler painting attacked with screwdriver

    An oil painting by Adolf Hitler hanging in an Italian museum has been attacked by a man wielding a screwdriver. The untitled work was damaged by a 40-year-old man who was outraged that the painting by the Nazi leader was hanging in a public space, the Corriere della Sera newspaper reports. It had been loaned by a private collector to the Museum of Salo, on the shores of Lake Garda, for an exhibition called the "Museum of Madness" earlier this year.

    Hitler's birthplace seizure backed by Austrian court

    Austria's Constitutional Court has ruled that the state was right to expropriate Adolf Hitler's birthplace, which will be remodelled and used by a disabilities charity. Former owner Gerlinde Pommer had appealed against parliament's vote in December to seize the property. The court said expropriation would help ensure that the building, in Braunau am Inn, did not become a neo-Nazi shrine.

    The Fake British Radio Show That Helped Defeat the Nazis

    By spreading fake news and sensational rumors, intelligence officials leveraged “psychological judo” against the Nazis in World War II. “Hier ist Gustav Siegfried Eins.” This is Gustav Siegfried Eins. “Es spricht der Chef.” The Chief is speaking. It was just before five in the evening on May 23, 1941, and the Chief's radio career had begun. What the Chief said over the next six minutes or so was something that Nazi troops listening to their shortwave radios had never heard before.

    Austria to demolish house where Adolf Hitler was born

    The house where Adolf Hitler was born will be torn down and replaced with a new building that has no association with the Nazi dictator, Austria's government announced Monday as it moved to eliminate the property's pull as a place of pilgrimage for neo-Nazis.

    Joseph Goebbels’ 105-year-old secretary: ‘No one believes me now, but I knew nothing’

    ‘It was rare for us to see him in the mornings,” says Brunhilde Pomsel, her eyes closed and chin in her hand as she recalls her former boss. “He’d walk up the steps from his little palace near the Brandenburg Gate, on to which his huge propaganda ministry was attached. He’d trip up the steps like a little duke, through his library into his beautiful office on Unter den Linden.” She smiles at the image, noting how elegant the furniture was, the carefree atmosphere where she sat in an ante-chamber off...

    Hitler 'had tiny deformed penis' as well as just one testicle, historians claim

    It has long been suspected that Hitler's conquest of Europe was an attempt to compensate for a lack of potency elsewhere. But the notorious playground rhyme about his testicles appears to have only told half the story, as a book claims the leader of the Third Reich had a micropenis. Hitler suffered from a condition called hypospadias which left him with an abnormally small manhood, according to historians Jonathan Mayo and Emma Craigie.

    Hitler’s World by Timothy Snyder

    Nothing can be known about the future, thought Hitler, except the limits of our planet: “the surface area of a precisely measured space.” Ecology was scarcity, and existence meant a struggle for land. The immutable structure of life was the division of animals into species, condemned to “inner seclusion” and an endless fight to the death.
