Rome wasn’t built in a day. And the Nazis didn’t exterminate 10 million people overnight. When we look for historical parallels to the current rise of fascism around the world, it’s important to remember how things became normalized in the past. And an old book about propaganda is a helpful tool in understanding how…
Yesterday, Sean Spicer said that Hitler, “didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons.” It was completely wrong and he apologized. One version of Spicer’s apology was posted on Facebook, and it appears to be just as offensive as his original statement. The only problem? It’s totally fake.
If you have hundreds of thousands of dollars and are extremely creepy, you can now buy a one-of-a-kind piece of history: Adolf Hitler’s personal telephone.
Eva Braun’s home movies of Adolf Hitler and other high-ranking Nazi officials are a terrifying time capsule of just how ordinary the most evil men in history can appear. The films show Hitler playing with children, Goebbels goofing around, and SS soldiers playfully chasing dogs. But the original 16mm films, which were…
When you combine an unhappy group of people with a leader who is more than willing to feed and exploit their fear with wild speeches and rhetoric, things can go bad. When people in business and intellectuals want to be on the favorable side of public opinion, so they start doing things they don’t believe are right,…
Danger 5, the Australian spy comedy series, is so weird that it's kind of hard to describe. It's like a long disjointed dream sequence, in which superspies fight Nazi dinosaurs, and when someone dies, they recite a drink recipe. And season two is way, way more bizarre — just see our exclusive sneak peek!
Mat Ames found some negatives in a thrift store in Roanoke, Virginia. After digitizing them, a lot of the photos seemed to belong to a couple's vacation in Naples, Italy, in 1938. Among all the scenic Italian vignettes there was a creepy surprise—a sinister figure sitting in a car under the sun. It was Adolf Hitler.
You're looking at an x-ray of Hitler's skull, now up for auction starting at $100. It was part of a 47-page 1945 classified report issued by the US Military Intelligence Service Center that "contained highly-detailed data obtained from Adolf Hitler's six chief physicians."
You've gotten your hands on a shiny new time machine, and you decide that your first order of business is to travel back in time and kill Hitler. But killing Hitler and preventing the Holocaust isn't quite as simple as it sounds. Here's why.
We've all argued over the standard old time travel paradoxes, but here's a rule we can all abide by: If you're going to kill Hitler, do it early. Besides, who do you think's easier to bump off, a bunkered dictator or a failing art student? [xkcd]
With his moon-based Nazi flick Iron Sky in the can, director Timo Vuorensola is turning his filmmaking eye toward a different breed of science fiction Nazi: time-traveling Hitler. Vuorensola is getting ready to adapt the film adaptation of Jason's graphic novel I Killed Adolf Hitler.
"Wouldn't it be hard to make a movie about a huge Nazi army in an underground world in Antarctica on a next-to-nothing budget?" you might ask. The answer is "Yes."
You're looking at one of five known X-rays of Hitler's head. The radiograph is just one of 17-million rare, intriguing, and often-bizarre items housed in the the U.S. National Library of Medicine, the largest medical library on Earth. We've got a gallery.
If the Axis Powers had won World War II, a group of American Nazi sympathizers hoped to lure Adolf Hitler to Los Angeles, where he would win the hearts and minds of the Hollywood elite. So assured were these Hitler fans of Germany's victory that they spent millions of dollars building the Führer a luxury ranch.
This is the house were Hitler spent the last years of his life, a remote mansion similar to the infamous Berghof located in the Nahuel Huapi Lake, in Patagonia, Argentina, a remote mountainous paradise full of Nazi refugees.
The Washington Post has highlighted some of the pieces at a new exhibit in the CIA's headquarters in Langley, Virginia. The most striking one is this one: a letter written by Lieutenant Richard Helms on Hitler's stationery.
It didn't take a lot of time—the obligatory Hitler gets angry about the new iPhone 4S video is out. It's actually hilarious, going in crescendo. All the references are spot on, but this is my favorite phrase:
Courtesy of the folks from the Upright Citizens Brigade's Midnight Show, we give you the best recent PSA we've seen in years. Drive safe... or not.
No, these never get old and this one is great. The end is particularly funny—if you're aware that HP is considering quitting the PC business, that is.
