HISTORY It Was Hard To Sell Goebbel’s Love Nest

ISN’T A LOVE NEST SOMETHING SMALL, ROMANTIC AND IDYLLIC? Yes, but not for Top Nazis like Joseph Goebbels, the Minister of Propaganda, with his insatiable sex appetite. He was a small man, 5’5“ or 1.65 m, but he was never afraid of grandeur. That’s why he was happy when his boss, Adolf Hitler, gave him … Weiterlesen »

NAZIS Lost & Found (No. 57)

NAZIS Lost & Found … (No. 4)

Look closely at this label of the „Kölner Hof“ in Frankfurt! It says at the bottom: „Jew-free for 40 years“. Now think a bit: It was printed around 1938, when the Nazis ruled Germany, naturally.
