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 ...

Albert Einstein According to Skeptic, Albert Einstein has already answered this himself, and apparently he said: "he had casually mentioned to some journalist that hardly any German intellectuals except a few churchmen were supporting individual rights and intellectual freedom. He added that this statement had subsequently been drastically exaggerated ...

True. There are two claims to address: Is the quote real? Does it apply to home-schooling? Hitler did say that. It does also 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 a reply to 'what do you think of home-schooling.' In that sense, Hitler ...

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 ...

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. ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

tl;dr: The words "Hakenkreuz" and "swastika" describe one and the same symbol, one time in Sanskrit and English, one time in German. Some believe that this 'is' an ancient Germanic symbol, some that it 'is' an ancient Indic. Both these schools argue with archaeology and unbroken tradition, Both claim that this is inherited from a not ...

TL;DR: It's complicated... Evidence shows that Hitler genuinely tried to become vegetarian in the early 30s, with some failings at times due to occasional consumption of ham, liver dumplings or some of the chefs adding meat without telling him. Ian Kershaw - historian notable in particular for his biographies on Hitler and nazi Germany - published several ...

There is such a quote floating around. But it is of some dubious quality, only written down long after the fact, by people not involved in the actual conversation. The saying is dated to 1933, said by Hitler to Bosch in a private meeting. Bosch then told his version to colleagues. And those start to write down this anecdote years after the war, starting ...

The statement was published well before being partially reprinted by Time in 1940. It was first published in 1934, for example in the La Crosse Tribune. The exact wording is by Rev. Dr. S. Parkes Cadman, who says he is "quoting in free translation a statement made by Professor Einstein last year to one of my colleagues...". After Time reprinted ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

You don't need to know Hitler's inner motives. They were quite out there. To be more precise, the motives to use swastikas were out there for Coca-Cola, Boy Scouts and California fruit producers. The Man Who Brought the Swastika to Germany, and How the Nazis Stole It The motives were so out there that they disprove what your linked site wanted to prove. It ...

It feels a bit lame to post this, but since this is getting upvotes/interest... According to the Snopes article linked by Daniel in a comment: this quotation appears to have been virtually non-existent until 2014, when it was used as the heading to Chapter 11 of Willfully Ignorant, a novel by Pat Miller set in Nazi-era Germany. (That book also mistakenly ...

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 reported German quote is said to be "Dann wird das Reich eben einmal die nächsten hundert Jahre ohne Physik und Chemie auskommem". "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 ...

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, ...

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 ...

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’...

Sort of, and "perhaps". There is a saying that is attributed to him, similar to the one used in the movie, but coming from a poisoned well of unreliability. There seems to be no reliable written record by himself and this does not seem to appear in any of his official and transcribed speeches. But even in the documented variant there is ample doubt ...

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 during ...

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 ...
