Quote from: TboneAgain on June 13, 2013, 11:43:18 AMAlfred Rosenberg was an "important" Nazi. He is considered what may pass as an "intellectual" in a decidedly non-intellectual political movement. Something like 600 pages of his hand-written diary have been recently discovered in upstate New York.Zowie!

Quote from: TboneAgain on June 24, 2013, 05:27:31 AMRosenberg probably didn't wear shoes that big in Hitler's Germany. Adolf himself appointed him a party leader in 1923 on the occasion of Adolf's imprisonment after the Beer Hall Putsch, but later dismissed his choice as one of convenience of a man too weak and nondescript to pose a threat to Hitler on his release and anticipated reassumption of power.In that year, Rosenberg became the editor of the Völkischer Beobachter, the newspaper that became the primary voice of the Nazi Party. His views on racial purity especially were disseminated through that outlet. I frankly do not understand why he was tried for war crimes and executed.
