What if Hitler had a family?

Post by SSALB » 11 Apr 2002 06:56

If Hitler had a family do you think he would do things differently and make different decisions?

I remember reading something that said Hitler adopted a little girl, I don't know what it exactly said.

Hitler - Family a Contradiction in terms..

Hitler - Family a Contradiction in terms..

According to the monumental Bio of Hilter by Ian Kershaw, Hilter's inability to built singificant and close relationship with others is at the very core of its personality. The way he behaved towards Eva Braun is one of the many signs of this trait.

So basically, imagining Hilter a family man, amounts to saying : what if Hilter was someone else entirely...

If he had children, I'm sure he'd have a similar relationship with them that Goebbels had with his children. Everything the Fuhrer says is right. I'm sure he'd tell himself everything he is doing is for the benefit of german children everywhere, that is pretty much what he thought anyways.

Hitler had a family...it was Germany and the party. He had to live the life of the eternal lonely man devoted to his people. That was why Eva was essentially a "mistress" rather than a "girlfriend."

Hitler did have a family, if a half-sister counts. (She survived the war). When the forgery of Hitler's Diaries were published, there were all kinds of legal problems arising from the Hitler estate.

I have to agree that Hitler was married to The Reich, and we all know how fucked-up that was. If you mean, "if Hitler had children of his own", they would have been really fucked-up.

There are descendants of Hitlers Family living in the United States, in the NYC area. I read an article about them, how they have all taken an oath not to have children so the name dies with them.

I think that is an urban myth about the family of Hitler living in New York City and all. There are other "Hitlers" living in Austria -- not necessarily related but the name lives on.
