It is entirely possible that Hitler said something of the sort, although it is rather a stretch to say it is about homeschooling. The law making school attendance compulsory was actually passed in 1919 as part of the Weimar constitution. Wikipedia: The Weimar Constitution Section 4: Education and School Articles 142 to 150 guided the operation of ...

True. There are two claims to address: Is the quote real? Does it apply to home-schooling? Hitler did say that. It does apply to home-schooling. It was the general principle of national-socialist education plans. He said the quote in a more general context than for example as reply to 'what do you think of home-schooling.' In that sense, Hitler did ...

Given that he spent time in prison, for the Nazi's unsuccessful "Beer Hall Putsch" in the German state of Bavaria. During his time in jail he famously wrote Mein Kampf, it is known that not everything he did was legal. Of course that's not the period during Mr. Hitler's life that Dr. King intended to refe :) You'll also have to define under which law. ...

The original Arabic seems to be from Surah 54,1 Al-Qamar: The Hour has come near, and the moon has split [in two]. __Translation into English from Quran.com What that sentence alone might mean is of course up for debate, but the claim seems to explicitly refer to using the quote as is, albeit and in all likelihood in a German version; not the meaning ...

Thanks to Laurel for locating the original article. As we can see, the quoted text did appear in the New York Times on June 15, 1934. I wanted to point out some important context that makes the excerpt somewhat misleading, and conflicts with Evan's characterization in the question's title. The phrasing "New York Times posted this Hitler apology" makes it ...

It's a slight exaggeration, but the core appears to be true. Wikipedia has a page on the Hitler family and what happened to it, which sources a lot of its information from The Last of the Hitlers by David Gardner. In that book, he tracks down and interviews the surviving members of the family. First generation Hitler had a sister, a half-brother, and a ...

According to an article in Marianne2 [French source], Loret's DNA was compared to that of Hitler's known male relatives, who must share a Y chromosome with Hitler. The results were that Loret cannot be Hitler's son. Those Y chromosomes can be considered partial, indirect samples of Hitler's DNA.

As the source of the image says, it’s from the June 15, 1934 issue of The New York Times. Here’s a screenshot of the article, "URGES GOOD WILL BY JEWS FOR NAZIS" by Henry J. Cadbury the Professor of Biblical Literature of Bryn Mawr College. You can see the start of the quote at the bottom left of the top image: -Splice-

Wiktionary support, verb: To back a cause, party, etc., mentally or with concrete aid. To help, particularly financially. Although there is evidence that Hitler agreed to (perhaps initiated) a framework for resettling Jews to Palestine, this does not imply he backed the Zionist cause in the political meaning of support. The Haavara Agreement was a ...

This seems to be a genuine product. The Hindustan Times report above, which seems to be the origin of most of the non-Indian reports, gives considerable detail on the name of the manufacturing company and the name of the owner, which it would be unlikely for even a semi-reputable newspaper to do without fact-checking. It also gives details about the ...

Like Skeptics.SE, The Straight Dope column by Cecil Adams looks at urban myths and investigates the evidence. Back in 1987, The Straight Dope looked at this question: Did Hitler have only one testicle? The conclusion reached was less than definitive: The idea was recorded in insulting ditties sung during World War II. A British historian determined that ...

It is a loose translation of something that he said according to a researcher. In Die Reden Hitlers am Reichsparteitag 1933, a compilation of speeches given by Hitler, he said this. Eine einzige Gefahr konnte es gegen diese Entwicklung geben: Wenn der Gegner das Prinzip erkannte, Klarheit über diese Gedanken erhielt und jeden Widerstand vermied. Oder ...

The death of Hitler is extensively documented, with copious source material summarized in the Wikipedia article on the Death of Adolf Hitler. The authors' claim of being "unable to unearth one bit of tangible evidence of Hitler's death" in light of that bibliography is utter sensationalist bunk. A cursory look at the book reviews on Amazon confirms ...

Yes, suicide rates was that high! Suicide in Nazi Germany by Christian Goeschel referenced in this essay says that Goeschel’s study of suicide in Nazi Germany (2009) shows that the number of suicides varied greatly as the War progressed, as far as can be determined. Following the First World War the German suicide rate climbed steadily from just under 16 ...

It is possible. But we do not know for sure. We cannot know for sure. The only source is not trustworthy and not reliable. The book located so far – "Hitler's Table Talk", in all its incarnations – as the source for the quote had its content commissioned and authorised allegedly by Bormann and was then published in German by an actual witness of these ...

I happened to have access to the book Suicide in Nazi Germany, so just to corroborate the earlier answers by reproducing some figures from the book. From p. 209 and p. 213, we see that suicide rates in Germany throughout the 1930s was indeed around 27 - 29: Bonus: He doesn't give corresponding figures for the war years for Germany as a whole, but does ...

There is no evidence, the author admits it himself. In the first source of the Wikipedia page, an article about Hitler's mustache in Vanity Fair, the author (Ron Rosenbaum) is quoted to write: It was Chaplin's first, before Hitler's," he writes in an essay from The Secret Parts of Fortune. "Chaplin adopted a little black crepe blot beneath the nose for ...

According to declassified FBI documents, there was information from an informant claiming Adolf Hitler arrived in Argentina via submarine. Did Adolf Hitler live till 1962? I can't immediately say from these documents, there's a lot to work through and the quality is fairly poor, but the FBI certainly found it plausible that Adolf Hitler was still alive ...

There is no evidence that Adolf Hitler ever spoke the quoted text. Furthermore, there is evidence that "I kept some (alive)" would have been against Hitler's beliefs and plans. The earliest I could find as a source for this quote online was in the talk page for Wikipedia's article on Adolf Hitler. i heard about a quote sayiing : "i would have killed all ...

Yes If the book "Hitler's Table Talk 1941-1944: Secret Conversations" is to be trusted as reliable, then... Yes, Hitler did say that, on the night of September 28-29, 1941.

According to the Middle East Media Research Institute's Special Dispatch No. 48, Hitler's Mein Kampf In East Jerusalem And PA Territories: Mein Kampf "is sixth on the Palestinian best-seller list". This was back in 1999, and supports the claim of the BBC article in the OP which is from 2002. Though the title in the OP generalizes to "Muslim countries", ...

The following photo shows Hitler eating meet with Prime Minister Neville Chamberlin: And, as you can see, Rynn Berry has written a monograph disproving the point, the full text of which can be purchased here for all the sordid details. Michael Bluejay also points out: Robert Payne is widely considered to be Hitler's definitive biographer. In his book, ...

No. In addition to the obvious (Beer Hall Putsch), he also violated the Enabling Act. Article 2 states, "Laws enacted by the government of the Reich may deviate from the constitution as long as they do not affect the institutions of the Reichstag and the Reichsrat. The rights of the President remain undisturbed." However, in 1934, Hitler abused the ...

Here is the actual quote by Donald Trump, in context, as per the White House transcript, linked from the Snopes article: SHERIFF MIMS: Thank you.

THE PRESIDENT: We have people coming into the country, or trying to come in — and we’...

Through a combination of coercion and persuasion, the Nazis managed to pass the so-called Enabling Act with the necessary two-thirds "supermajority" in the Reichstag. The key features of the Act were that with very few exceptions, "...laws of the Reich may also be enacted by the government of the Reich... Laws enacted by the Reich government shall be ...

The reported German quote is said to be "Dann wird das Reich eben einmal die nächsten hundert Jahre ohne Physik und Chemie ausokommem". "The German Chemical Industry in the Twentieth Century" describes it as an anecdote, and cites "Karl Holdermann, Im Banne der Chemie: Carl Bosch, Leben und Werk" (Düsseldorf, 1953), 271-273. I don't know how reliable the ...

No. Adolf Hitler died on 30 April 1945. Barack Obama was born on 4 August 1961. Death of Hitler: 30 April 2005 marked the sixtieth anniversary of the suicide of Adolf Hitler in his bunker below the Reich Chancellery in Berlin. ... At the end of the Second World War various members of Hitler's personal staff, who had been with him in the bunker ...

A few years ago I have seen a presentation by Mark Benecke, a forensic biologist, here in Cologne (Germany). He was among the scientists who took the DNA samples from the skull. According to him, the fragments had been touched by everyone in the Russian institute, so the DNA could have been from one of the scientists in the lab. The presentation is not ...

The number may or may not be correct. But it is plausible. If you view the Wikipedia article List of countries by suicide rate, there are several countries that nowadays have a suicide rate above 20 per 100,000 people per year. Wikipedia says that for 1930, there were 65,130,000 people in Germany. 65,130,000 * 20 / 100,000 gives 13,026, which is over half ...

The professor, Brian Ford, included this claim in his book, Secret Weapons: Death Rays, Doodlebugs and Churchill's Golden Goose. But that book is not a reliable source. I personally know it to have included a hoax copied from Wikipedia, the non-existent "Japanese death squad" "Unit 773". (page) The actual source of the claim is Stanley Lovell's 1963 book Of ...
