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?
i reblogged this literally like 2 minutes ago, but i want this version because of that comment ^
This is awkward lol.
The bolded statament yes so true.
One of the most controversial films about Adolf Hitler was Der Untergang. Part of why it was so controversial is that it portrayed Hitler as a human who could at times be caring, affectionate, and even friendly. Hitler’s private secretary, Traudl Junge, who only passed away a few years ago, described him as pleasant and fatherly. She claimed that she was not aware of all the things that he did until after it was over.
It is very discomfiting to think of Hitler as anything other than his evil caricature. But while he was able to flash a smile or be kind to people one-on-one, he was still an evil bastard who ravaged continents and led several genocides.
hitler wasn’t evil. that is what people don’t want to see. he was a flawed human being like all of us and could have been almost anyone.
most of us prefer to see bad and evil things as removed from us, from ” normal ” people. that’s what allows them to happen in the first place.
