I have read many books on World War I & II and the movies with the brutal murder of Jews. I have read how Germany lost to Russia too but always wanted to see how it feels when a person who made people to treat him like a god …at the time of his defeat how.. what it was all about…? It was a question to me..!
“The public have an insatiable curiosity to know everything, except what is worth knowing” ~ Oscar Wilde
I had this surprise movie with Bruno Canz (Adolf Hitler – awesome justification to the character), Alexandra Maria Lara (as Hitler’s secretary) and so on…directed by Oliver Hirsch – biegel!
It is basically witnessing the last days of Adolf Hitler through the eyes of the secretary. It is a German movie with English sub-titles!
Noble life demands a noble architecture for noble uses of noble men. Lack of culture means what it has always meant: ignoble civilization and therefore imminent downfall ~ Frank Lloyd Wright
All I was thinking and astonished by was the ‘loyalty’ …that was shown by Adolf Hitler’s army!! Though there were who deserted him at the very moment when he might have needed there help…however the kind of influence he had made upon the German people was…something very terrifying as even young kids were ready to kill themselves just for his sake!!!
“We are all in the same boat in a stormy sea, and we owe each other a terrible loyalty.” ~ GK Chesterton
It started bothering me..how important it is to be loyal and don’t we think upon as to whom should we show our loyalty and why???
A person could be anyone but don’t we have our consciousness where we think what is right and what is wrong? Whom shall we support and whom should we help in need, even though they might think its not there fault.
“Loyalty means nothing unless it has at its heart the absolute principle of self-sacrifice.”
At the end…what I see is that Hitler…came to rule as per his desire and fulfill his dreams and he even decided the fate of the Germans where as when it was his downfall…he decided what he want to do but he let the Germans suffer…at that moment his helplessness and his frustration was let everyone die..I don’t care was the attitude!!! The below quote is something I think he used up to its fullest!!!
“An ounce of loyalty is worth a pound of cleverness.”
As per his will his body was burnt but then…was he able to eradicate the deeds that he did to the people of Germany? The brutal murder…the cruelty???
“Neither fire nor wind, birth nor death can erase our good deeds” ~ Buddha
I was just sitting there wondering. …thinking deep in my mind- I was away there in that era… no matter what…rich or poor…king or Pauper…we all die and when we die we don’t remain to speak or defend ourselves but our deeds speak for itself!!!!!
“Don’t listen to their words, fix your attention on their deeds.” ~ Albert Einstein
A nice thought for my friends…live up to its fullest…try not to harm…but let everyone has the opportunity of living in peace
“The foundation stones for a balanced success are honesty, character, integrity, faith, love and loyalty.”

Brainwash, my dear, brainwash. For some reasons, we can be so easily brainwashed…don’t know why. It is present in some lesser degree among all of us, everywhere, at every moment. You haven’t heard from people around you – “Oh! they are like these,” or “chinese are like these,” “indians are like these”, “men are like these,” “women are like these,”…..and on and on…. we don’t use logic, reasonings, but just like to get brainwashed and generalize everything. When we do that in the extreme, we get Nazis and Al-Qaedas and what not…….
