The Brazilian ranch where Nazis once owned slaves

In the 1930s, during Hitler’s rise to power in Germany, the above photo of a local Brazilian soccer team was taken, and those swastikas on those flags are exactly those kind of swastikas— Nazi swastikas. Because in the 1930s, there were quite a few very fervent supporters of Adolph Hitler and his plans for genocide and world domination. And these Brazilian Nazis weren’t just bad in name only, they also were pretty big slave owners— and the soccer players in the photo were slaves. Stolen from orphanages and forced to work on farms their whole lives.

Why you can’t travel back in time and kill Hitler

If any work of sci-fi involving time travel goes on long enough, there’s always the “Let’s travel back and time and kill Hitler” premise. But time and time again, the theory goes, that doing such a thing might seem noble, but might actually be impossible even if time travel were a possible, real thing.

Read more here on the many, many ways science fiction has shown the broad ramifications of trying to kill Hitler with a time machine

Super rare behind the scenes footage of Jerry Lewis’s Holocaust clown movie disaster ‘The Day the Clown Cried’

For some reason, in 1972, Jerry Lewis thought it would be a good idea to make a movie about a circus clown that leads Jewish children to their deaths in Nazi gas chambers. Literally every other human being alive or dead with possibly the exception of Hitler could see what a bad idea this was from a hundred miles away, but Lewis did it anyway.

When it was completed, Lewis realized what an awful, awful thing he had done and locked the film away, vowing it would never be seen by anyone. And perhaps the closest we’ll ever get is this recently unearthed behind the scenes footage.

Hitler reacts to the Sim City launch debacle

It’s not the best Downfall video ever, but I’m sure even long-dead Hitler is pissed off about the new Sim City launch disaster. Seriously, EA… fuck your servers, fuck your Origin registration, just let me play Sim City.

In 1924, Hitler was tamed to by prison, improved his painting technique and the world never heard from him again
From the Dec 20, 1924 issue of the New York Times: Adolph Hitler’s rehabilitation is now complete, and he is “no longer to be feared.”

One of Hitler’s private toilets has been hiding out in New Jersey for decades
According to Kohfeldt, the toilet came off of Hitler’s biggest private yacht, the Aviso Grille, which was between 400 and 500 feet long, and at the time one of the biggest private boats in existence. “He wanted to ride it down the Thames in London and go live in Windsor Palace when he invaded,” Kohfeldt told me on a subzero morning last week as he pulled a sink—also from the ship, and now in pieces—out of a box and laid them out for me to examine each of the maker’s stamps and faucets. Another resident of Florence, Dick Glass—an expert on Hitler’s yacht—told me that the ship was armed, had a crew of 245 men, a private room for Eva Braun, and was bigger than J.P. Morgan’s ship Corsair. The Aviso Grille also played a significant role in one particular moment in history: Hitler’s Grand Admiral Karl Dönitz stood on the deck of the ship on May 1, 1945, and gave the first word of the Führer’s death and took command of Germany.  After the war ended, the Aviso Grille was taken to the United States and ended up in the hands of New Jersey shipyard owner Harry Doan, who illegally charged visitors 25 cents to board and tour Hitler’s Yacht. However, according to Glass, both Doan and the federal government wanted to prevent the ship from becoming a memorial to Hitler, and so it was scrapped in Doan’s salvage yard in the early 1950s.

Just when you think you’ve seen all the good Downfall videos, here’s what happens when Hitler takes too much Viagra

I literally could not stop laughing through this entire video. Thanks, Delsyd you jackass.

Things you should never, ever do while running for president of anywhere: Mention Hitler as a pioneer in green energy

This would have been a pretty piss poor answer to a question about the future of American energy anyway, but then Mitt had to go and mention Hitler as an innovator in energy solutions. Even though you can tell by the end of that sentence fragment, Romney knows he shouldn’t have mentioned Hitler, it’s too late to take it back.
