"EDITORIAL NOTE: WHY STUDY HITLER AND OTHER TOTALITARIAN LEADERS?
As we have mentioned above, we believe Hitler's ideas about race and the Jews are
both evil and wrong. We are totally opposed to ideas such as racism
and religious intolerance. Our
Global Education Project has
been fighting such evils for over 20 years. Furthermore, we cannot see Hitler's ideas on race and
the Jews ever becoming dominant ideas again, although they still unfortunately have some levels of support.
So why study Hitler at all?
The significance of Hitler to us is that his rise to power is a case
study of how a democracy openly chose to appoint a dictator. As Martin
Luther King correctly noted, almost everything Hitler did was legal."
