I just don`t understand how someone can be so mean to so many people. I will never understand what was going through Hitker`s mind at this time.

Hitler was a brilliant thinker. But his hatred for the Jewish race was quite uncalled for. Mainly because Adolf Hitler was Jewish himself. Also because he caged these people like animals. He decided to try and wipe out an entire race by killing, raping, and destroying the jews. He did this without thinking that maybe us Americans might actually find his coward *** When he found out we almost had him, he took his own life to avoid defeat. Or so they say.
