UK's Neville Chamberlain's certainly didn't see Hitler's dark side - until it was too late.<quoted text>
"No one ever suspected he had a dark side just under the surface for years. That was a real eye opener for me too. How Hitler came across as so non-threatening for so long to so many. Kind of hard to believe in retrospect. "
Which book originated this piece of knowledge?
Tell us about Hitler's light side!
When was Hitler Non-threatening?
Holocaust deniers write this type of misinformation.
Are you a Holocaust denier?
Goebbels was skilled in propaganda techniques, and he and Hitler were extremely popular in Germany in the 1930s. Movies, newspapers and radio fawned over them.
All the while, they were lying about who they were and where they were going. Mussolini, too, was also once wildly popular.
This is the lesson history should teach us:
In all of these cases, people cheered for what eventually brought them misery. They cheered because they were ignorant and ignorant because no one told them the truth.
Those in power allowed no other opinions and lied to them.
If they would have been fully informed, they would have been horrified by that truth.
