I never heard of anything like that so I doubt Hitler and Stalin met face to face even during their alliance.

Hitler and Stalin never met, nor did they even speak on the telephone. The only Nazi leader to have met Stalin was Ribbentrop when he visited the Kremlin twice in August and September 1939.

The Russian Foreign Minister, Molotov, met Hitler though in November 1940 during an official state visit to Berlin.

Kind regards.
The truth is that you're a quiet, sensitive type, but if I'm prepared to take a chance I might just get to know the inner you: witty, adventurous, passionate, loving, loyal, a little bit crazy, a little bit bad, but, hey, don't us girls just love that?

Closest they came to actualy meeting each other was in Vienna in 1912 IIRC, when both were living in the city (Josip Broz AKA Tito was also in Vienna at that time). There was an interesting article on this topic in one of Austrian newspapers some months ago.

Cheers,

They need not be embarassed. In the 1960s some Italian town council proposed demolishing a statue of Mussolini. the Mayor ask why bother? After all there were statues of worse Roman leaders scattered about the town squares.

Let some young idealist look at the statue and be reminded how the path to hell is paved with good intentions.

Stalin and Trotsky lived in the same section of Vienna as Hitler in 1913, as did Marshal Tito. Stalin and Trotsky were lucky not to see Hitler face to face because Trotsky's Jewish ancestry was another reason brought up by Hitler to demonize communism as a Jewish invention.
