    Staged photo of Adolf Hitler-as propaganda showing the German people he was one of them

    The man in the much publicized Holocaust photo has been only recently identified as Rabbi Moshe Hegerman, the Rabbi of Olkusz in Poland.

    Rudolf Höss pitifully attempting to avoid the noose at Auschwitz. There have been accusations -made by those of less-than-stellar character - that Höss was tortured by the British before his trial. I hope they're right. There are occasions when deeds are so monstrous and vile that those who committed them deserve pain, and torment, and living hell before being given the mercy of death. Retribution and Justice sometimes are very nearly the same. Höss deserved much, much worse.

    'Hitler was descended from the Jews and Africans he hated' Adolf Hitler is likely to have been descended from both Jews and Africans, according to DNA tests. Samples taken from relatives of the Nazi leader show that he is biologically linked to the 'sub-human' races he sought to exterminate. Journalist Jean-Paul Mulders and historian Marc Vermeeren used DNA to track down 39 of the Fuhrer's relatives earlier this year. Hitler was 1/4 Jewish.

    World War II

    A day before Adolf Hitler committed suicide in his Berlin bunker, Italian fascist leader Benito Mussolini met a more public end. He and his mistress, Clara Petacci were caught by partisans while trying to flee into Switzerland. On April 29, 1945, the two were shot to death in the small village of Giulino di Mezzegra. Their corpses were then taken to the Piazzale Loreto in Milan and strung up on meat hooks above a gas station. Crowds threw stones at the bodies for several days.
