A Tumblr user explains why this picture (left) is terrifying:
"I’m Jewish, so I’m perfectly capable of understanding that what he did was just...well, there are no words for it. But let’s not round it up to simply Jews that got killed. It was eleven million people that died in those camps, not just Jews. Did you know that homosexuals were sent there, too? Yeah, I’m sure you did. They had to wear special little symbols on their clothes. Do you know what it was? It was a pink triangle.
It was six million PEOPLE.
But you let that roll over in your mind for a while and you are going to forever see this man as a monster, but that’s not what he was. He was someone who thought he was truly doing something right for his nation, no matter how shitty he was doing it. Believe me when I say that I don’t like him. I really don’t. My grandfather’s brothers died in those camps, and my grandfather escaped to Spain, then to Mexico. He was lucky.
This is not a monster holding hands with a little girl. This is Adolf Hitler, a man, holding hands with a little girl.
