But in all seriousness, how it stands in society is who won the war.
We won so they were the bad guys. If they won, we would be the bad guys.
In reality, he had an interest concept, and put a lot of stride into science with human testing that otherwise wouldn't have been done, but sadly didn't get to far into it.
Its very rare that good people are marked as monsters because they were on the loosing side, but its quite common to see monsters as heroes because they won.
There is no doubt that the holocaust happened and Hitler was a "bad" men. Of course he was not Hollywood bad since no one is, but he was a fanatic that was doing what he thought would be a good thing like every other human. There can be no doubt that Hitler is among the worst persons that ever happened to this world by effect and not by motive. And that is the only way we can judge it.
The real problem is that people like Harry S. Truman for example are considered heroes only because they were on the winning side. We germans owe alot to this man since he amoung other is responsible for the great rebuild of our nation and had a strong opinion against the french plan to turn germany into a nation of farmers.
But you can do as much good stuff as you want, when you are responsible for the death of over 250 000 civilians in a already defeated country.
There are too much war criminals that are not seen as what they are, but that does not mean the war criminals we already know are innocent.

Well after watching the movie downfall. Hitler looks like a normal man to me. Someone who wanted to do good things for the world but ended up doing more harm.
Good intentions yes. So many people have them, but the means are just as important as the end.

Either way you're an idiot.
He was the man who took germany from the bigest economic crisis ever seen ( hyper-inflation and all that sheiz) He also build up germany with roads and compagnies and got jobs for many german people back in 1930's ( mostly army but still) +1 good
