Germans can't get enough of Adolf Hitler books

UPI News Service, 03/25/2005 

Germans are snapping up books about Adolf Hitler in unprecedented numbers, the Telegraph reported Friday.

Many of the books seem almost whimsical about the Nazi leader with such titles as "A Strawberry for Hitler" by a horticulturist who wants to name a subspecies of the fruit after the fuhrer.

One columnist has likened the plethora of publications to a "garish circus of commemoration."

"Sixty years ago the Third Reich perished," wrote Jens Jessen in the Die Zeit newspaper. "Now one gets the impression it is being resurrected on a daily basis."

The sheer volume of the new literature plus its focus on the minutiae of Hitler's personal life raises concerns among some.

"Television, cinema and illustrated magazines are bringing the forms of brown-uniformed soldiers or SS officers into our living rooms with an intensity that's never been known before ... the heroes of the crimes against humanity are laughing in our faces," wrote Jessen.
