1002 words - 4 pages

The first person I am going to compare of the two people is Adolf Hitler. A very well known man during the 1930's. He is one of the world's most known and hated leader. Hitler is called mad. His men were cultivated, educated, learned men. Germany wasn't a backward country, preyed on by ignorance, but one of the most advanced nations in the world. Hitler's program was one for evil and destruction and yet the majority of the people in Germany accepted it.
