[The night of Hitler’s suicide] I was assigned a small room in the navy barrack. When I unpacked my overnight bag, I saw Hitler’s portrait, which he had signed for me on my 40th birthday six weeks before. I was quite all right, you know, until - I don’t know why - I opened the case and stood the photograph up on the night table. And then suddenly, standing there, I started to sob. I couldn’t stop; it just went on and on until, still dressed, I fell asleep on the bed. […] That’s when the dreams began, dreams of his knowing what I did, dreams of his saying that I wanted to kill him. They went on for years, and even now they sometimes come back. Sometimes he isn’t even in the room in these dreams, but he is in the dreams, or he is the dream.
Albert Speer, quoted from Gitta Sereny’s Albert Speer: His Battle with Truth.
Today is a day of mourning and remembrance that you might not be aware of. April 24th marks Yom Hashoah - a Jewish day of remembrance for the Holocaust - and it is also the Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day. In the 1910’s, almost 1.5 million Armenians (about 98% of them Christian) were rounded up and slaughtered by the hands of the Ottoman Empire in the name of Islam and for absolute control. Then, in the 1930’s-1940’s, the Nazi party (helmed by the infamous Adolf Hitler) in an attempt to exercise complete control over Germany and Europe through “National Socialism,” captured and imprisoned and murdered upwards of six million Jews.
Seven and a half million people, systematically killed at the hands of an oppressive government in the name of power, within the past 100 years.
Let us remember them all and never forget that evil truly does exist in the world, and that “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” - Edmund Burke.
