It is interesting to see how a dictator could influence the entertainment industry. There are a lot of movies and serials influenced by the life of this dictator who ruled in Germany for more than a decade and there are many who might find his ideology perhaps acceptable. But for many others who feel that this world is a place for everyone irrespective of their status; small or large; the ideology is difficult to digest.

Do you know Adolf Hitler?
I once met a man who had heard Hitler. It was in 1973 when he was 63, when I was a student teacher. He was a teacher who was holidaying in Germany before the war when he stopped his car on the road as one of Hitler's rallies was taking place. Hitler was protected by hundreds of SS guards standing behind him. Now my colleague did not speak German, but he could hear Hitler on the loud speakers, but what he experienced terrified him, and I will tell you what it was. Hitler's voice had a strange rhythm and power to address the depths of the human soul. It aroused a strange and disturbing excitement and evil thoughts. My colleague simply got back into his car and fled.He had become aware that he was hearing evil.
So true. And although many decades have passed since the demise of Hitler, people are still afraid to talk about him especially in those areas where Nazis ruled.
Sebastian Hafner, a German who fled from the Nazis, observed that there were many Germans who opposed Hitler, and that when the Nazis invaded Poland Hitler had to keep back three divisions of S to hold back dissent in Germany. But dissent was ruthlessly suppressed.
