During World War II, Nazi Germany carried out the greatest art theft in history.
Led by Nazi philosopher Alfred Rosenberg and the Reichsleiter Rosenberg Task Force (ERR), the Nazis stole over one million art pieces from across Europe. Many of the plundered “ownerless cultural goods” were destined for a proposed Führermuseum in Linz. (1945) 

Strange Facts About Hitler 

PERSONAL APPEARANCE

• Hitler never allows anyone to see him while he is naked or bathing. He refuses to use cologne or scents of any sort on his body

• No matter how warm he feels, Hitler will never take off his coat in public

• In 1923, Nazi press secretary Dr. Sedgwick tried to convince Hitler to get rid of his trademark mustache or grow it normally. Hitler answered: “Do not worry about my mustache. If it is not the fashion now, it will be later because I wear it!”

Technical Sergeant William E. Thomas and Private First Class Joseph Jackson prepared a gift of special “Easter Eggs” for Adolph Hitler and the German Army.  Scrawling such messages on artillery shells in World War II was one way in which artillery soldiers could humorously express their dislike of the enemy. Easter, 1945
