To qualify as “Aryan” you had to prove that none of your four grandparents was Jewish. In practice, this meant that you had to prove that they were baptised Christians. If you had a Jewish great-grandparent you would still qualify as “Aryan” if that great-grandparent had converted to Christianity and had his or her children baptised. So the Nazi “race” ...

While there was an idealzed physical appearance of the "master race" (blonde hair, blue eyes, ect.), it was not practical to use that as a basis for discrimination because too few people would have passed - most importantly not Hitler himself! Instead, the Aryan certificate required to keep full citizen's rights was based entirely on ancestry: if your ...

Franco did not think that you couldn't be a Catholic and a bloodthirsty Fascist dictator at the same time, because he was. Franco wouldn't have been able to win the war against the Spanish Republic without Hitler's help. In turn, Franco supplied Hitler with materiel before and during world war two, and was only prevented from joining the war on Hitler's ...

I found many citations (e.g., here) for this quote to Réforme, which is a French, Protestant weekly, not a Spanish newspaper. Being Protestant, it's hardly a credible source for the extraordinary claim that Hitler is a "son of the Catholic Church" who "died while defending Christianity." The quote is obviously spurious.

Adolf Hitler believed that the root of Western Civilisation was Christianity. Although the Fuhrer did not believe in a personal God and was not himself a Marian ...

"Was Hitler hostile to anglo-saxons before he became hostile to Jews?" No. Any hostility he felt towards the English or the Anglo-Americans (I assume that's what you mean by 'Anglo-Saxons') is not comparable to his hostility towards the Jews. The most obvious way to compare this is Hitler's relative treatment of PoWs of the Western Allies and of Jews. A ...

Their relationship changed a lot through time. The following observations are based on Alan Bullock's work, Hitler: a Study in Tyranny. Mussolini came to power in 1922, when Hitler was still basically a Munich gangster. Hitler wrote about his admiration for Mussolini's Italy in Mein Kampf... presumably Mussolini didn't even know who Hitler was at this ...

The Nazi doctrine was to eliminate all Jews sooner or later, no matter what were their views. But the Nazis of course could protect some selected Jews, based on whether they were useful rather than their attitude, but this usually meant only that they will come for them later. Note also that the various Nazi institutions could conduct different policy, ...
