Adolf HITLER: A Universal Symbol

"Sixty years after his death, the mass-destroyer is more popular than ever.

In India he symbolizes resistance, in Egypt prosperity, in Peru discipline. The Senegalese celebrate him as a hero of anti-colonialism and the Chinese in Hong Kong as a champion of style. Presumably, Hitler is the only European who, more than half a century after his death, is still widely known around the world. Other contemporary politicians, such as Churchill or de Gaulle, are merely remembered in the respective linguistic or cultural spheres; the same goes for intellectual heroes like Göthe, Kant, Cervantes, Shakespeare."

Read more about Hitler & the total weirdness surrounding him to this day on this interesting site. The whole thing is pretty weird & fun over at the Grey Falcon.
