Hitler flirting with Eva Braun.

I don’t know how this makes me feel

It makes me feel very uncomfortable

You know what’s so uncomfortable about this? It shows that perhaps one of the most evil men in history, was a human being. That, on occasion, he could be nice, even flirty. That’s not all. You want to see evil people as evil, screaming horrible stuff over a desk with 20 microphones with 20, 000 people saluting them. The evil is clear and recognizable then. This shows a completely different image, it scares you because that means that evil isn’t a stereotype, that evil is not recognizable, that evil could be anyone. It scares you because this shows that could be lurking inside anyone and you’ll never ever know. Maybe in you? 

You know what’s even worse?

The man loved puppies. He had a German Shepherd named Blondie, who had puppies, and there are, like, multiple accounts of him snuggling and playing with them.

Doesn’t that just make you feel weird inside?

He also liked children. 

He invented the VW bug.

Hitler was a normal person that had very extremist ideals. He’s remembered for being one of the most evil people of all time, but that doesn’t change the fact that he’s still a person.

People ask and wonder why Adolf Hitler is an interest of mine; improbablenormality’s bit is a perfect explanation as to why.

I remember doing Germany and Russia for History GCSE, and my teacher hated doing Stalin, because “he was incredibly dull”, but loved teaching about Hitler because “ugh he was sooo charismatic!”

He was also an artist, a vegetarian, didn’t smoke in a time where almost all the upper class or wealthy did and never drank.

I think that’s what makes him so terrifying. Not just because of what he did, but the fact that the person who committed all those atrocities was just that, a person, human.

Some of the paintings I’ve seen from him were pretty. Take away his ideals and you can see he’s like us. Interesting…
