CIA Hires Nazis to fight Russians, Hides them in America

The Central Intelligence Agency and other U.S. spy agencies recruited at least 1,000 former Nazis as spies and informants during the Cold War and went to great lengths to cover up that many of the former Nazis were living in the U.S., the New York Times reports.
The report — adapted from the forthcoming “The Nazis Next Door: How America Became a Safe Haven for Hitler’s Men,” by Times reporter Eric Lichtblau — documents how Cold Warriors like the FBI’s J. Edgar Hoover and the CIA’s Allen Dulles courted former Nazis on account of their purported  ”intelligence value against the Russians.”

Hadio pulls Hitler Afro Shirts

 Hitler afro shirt – Hadio

A woman spotted a t-shirt of Adolf Hitler with an afro at Montreal store called Hadio. She was so outraged, she sent the owner a letter from her lawyer. The complaint led Hadio clothing to take the T-shirts of the shelves.

A store salesman says the T-shirts were not intended to be anti-Semitic.
"Most people we sold it to use it to make a joke to their friends," explains the employee who wanted to stay anonymous.
The spokesman for the Centre for Israel and Jewish affairs thinks the design is harmless.
"Making Hitler an object of ridicule is not a bad thing," says David Ouellette.

Tonight: Hitler Guest Spot on DirecTV's Downtown Abbey Parody Premier

Downton Abbey doesn’t return to American televisions until January, but CollegeHumor and DirecTV paired up to give us something to satisfy our British-period-drama thirst with The Britishes, a series of Downton Abbey parodies.
Adolf Hitler visits the Britishes’ (yes, that’s the family’s last name) estate in the first episode, titled “The Charming Mr. Hitler.” In the sketch, Hitler woos the ladies with his Germandrawing skills, and desire to traveland somehow escapes accusations of his evil.

USA Deports Nazis, Continues Social Security Payments To Exiles

Dozens of suspected Nazis and SS guards collected millions in benefits after they were deported from the U.S. or persuaded to give up their citizenship, a two-year investigation by the Associated Press found, and some of them are still alive and receiving their payments. The report says the benefits were used as a bargaining tool to get suspects to leave the country voluntarily — a claim denied by the Justice Department.

Review: Meet the Hitlers

Posted By

From its droll premise, Tulane University graduate Matt Ogens' documentary Meet the Hitlers follows the infamous moniker back into the past and out into the world, finding subjects in such far-flung locales as Salt Lake City, Utah, Ecuador and the Rhineland. What might have been merely a gimmick resolves into a strange and strangely powerful portrait of bloodlines and family ties, by turns funny, upsetting and affecting. "It's been a little journey, people asking me about my name," carpenter Hitler Gutierrez says, but Meet the Hitlers is nothing of the sort: it contains multitudes.

It screens twice at the New Orleans Film Festival. Ogens previously directed the documentary Confessions of a Superhero, about people who impersonate comic book heroes at Hollywood's Walk of Fame. Ogens also has directed projects for ESPN.

Marshalling a colorful band of Hitlers, Hittlers, Hitler parodists, Hitler imitators and Hitler researchers, from 16-year-old Emily to 80-year-old Gene, the film turns out to be as interested in the practice of naming as in the name itself. With artful, kitschy montages of family photos, drivers' licenses, household clutter and suburban streets, Ogens depicts the diverse fabrics from which identity is made, and the connection, however superficial, to history's most notorious villain elicits a similarly wide range of responses. Shame, humor, sorrow and pride all shadow the film, as if the very word "Hitler" is in the eye of the beholder. "It's sooo Hittler!" a friend exclaims as Emily twirls in a frilly, sparkly pink dress; "I'm a stranger," says German Romano Lukas Hitler, who claims to be Adolf Hitler's nephew. "I'm a stranger everywhere. The only person I have is God."

From these loose ends — a New Jersey neo-Nazi, an artist living in Oregon, a journalist searching for Adolf Hitler's last living relations in a Long Island, New York village — Meet the Hitlers weaves a remarkable narrative of disparate people linked as much by a craving for kinship as they are by the titular surname.

"I will never die as long as I have family," Gene says, before showing his daughters their ancestors' graves.

"This is the only place left for the Hitler family," Romano says, pointing to his own burial plot.

As the film's subjects pore over archives and heirlooms, we learn that Adolf Hitler's remaining descendants, brothers living under an assumed name in the United States, made a pact never to bear children.

What's in a name? Maybe everything, the surprisingly poignant Meet the Hitlers suggests, or maybe only what we decide to make of it.

Meet the Hitlers screens in the Documentary Feature competition at the New Orleans Film Festival:
- 7:15 p.m. Friday, Oct. 17; Theatres at Canal Place 9
- 5:15 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 19; Contemporary Arts Center

Htiler's Art Collection Frows in Value

Last year, the market was awakened by the sale of a painting by Karl Walther for 23,000 euro. It was an extremely scarce piece as it once hung in the New Chancellery of Adolf Hitler. It seems now that this was not a one-off occasion. Recently works of other artists popular in the Third Reich have been sold for considerable prices. Almost 70 years after World War II, more and more people see this art from a purely historical perspective. Although the art works originate from an extremely tragic period, they should not be hidden or destroyed. This is an opinion shared by several museums, seeing the rising number of exhibitions of this art and the number of visitors.
