    200 years ago, Napolean was the hated enemy of most of europe.

    He basically brought France to ruin and was vilified by the Frence people.

    Today Napolean is seen in a different light.

    He is now an icon in France, and seen as a beloved French patriot.


    The question is:

    200 years from now.

    Will Hitler be seen as an icon by the German people, and be viewed as a German patriot?

    While you won't hear German's openly express their true feelings there are many German's (In Bavaria) that still think Hitler was a good man and did great things for Germany.

    I know this for a fact.

    I don't align myself with those German's that think that by the way.

    Time seems to have a way of rehabilitating historical figures.

    No there was a documentry on this...German's that think Hilter was great never thought anything different from that. Time had nothing to do with it. This is a small portion of the German population but they are there.

    I doubt it.

    Hitler's drive to take over Europe and Napoleons were so different that they really aren't comparable.

    Both men wanted to conquer Europe and both invaded Russia

    But comparing the two isn't what this thread is about.

    I believe that in 200 years.

    Hitler will be viewed in a totally different light.

    Not only in Europe, but also in the U.S.

    You're living on another planet. There is no way millions of murdered people will be erased from History no matter how much you wish that would happen.:lol:

    Sounds more like wishful thinking to me.

    Needlessly killing millions of civilians isn't something Europe is likely to soon forget about Hitler.

    This thread isn't about the so called holocaust or what I wish would happen.

    I am just saying that history usually gets rewritten after several generations of people look back on historical events.
