3 Aug 1934 Hitler appoints himself President-Chancellor of Germany (total control) and begins his regime by persecuting Jews.
No Jews allowed, 1 May 1935
"I am all bluster.
I am not violent.
I am not malicious.
I am a result."
"Sometimes I arrive too early.
I rush,
and some people cling longer
to life than expected."
"By the way-
I like this human idea of the grim reaper. I like the scythe.
It amuses me."
*A Guided Tour of Suffering*
To your left,
perhaps your right,
perhaps even straight ahead,
you find a small black room.
In it sits a Jew.
He is scum.
He is starving.
He is afraid.
Please- try not to look away.
Ignore the itchy feet.
Don't scratch the soles.
And don't move too much.
Just leave everything as it is, at all cost.
