Hitler the hypocrite idealized an Aryan ideal (blonde hair, blue eyes – blah, blah, blah) and encouraged women to have children, plenty of them. As a matter of fact, couples with lots of children were rewarded and those who could not or did not conceive were fined (punished). But Hitler himself would not father any children for fear that he did not live up to the Aryan ideal he so zealously believed.
Hitler led a eugenics program which sterilized hundreds of thousands of mentally or terminally ill Germans. Sterilization quickly became medically endorsed murder. The claim was to reduce the burden on a healthy German State. The other part of the equation was the purification of Aryan blood – they hoped to rid themselves of disease through a 600 year campaign of eradication.
This is a picture of Hitler around 1939 (not 100% sure) – I don’t know who he’s sitting with. The picture below is Hitler in 1945. Looking good, eh?!
Hitler is 56 years old in this photo. His shoulders are hunched over. His chest looks like it collapsed. He had an uncontrollable twitch in his right arm. He could barely use his right hand. His face is sallow. It looks like he aged about fifty years in only five. But what happened to his nose?
Here’s the kicker. A recent idea is that Hitler was suffering from Parkinson’s Disease. There has been long speculation about syphilis. Either way, Hitler would not have survived his own eugenics program.
Adolf Hitler would become one of the last victims of said eugenics program with a self administered dose of poison.
And the world was rid of his disease.
