Hitler Was a Vegetarian
I am a vegetarian. Not only a vegetarian, but also a promoter of vegetarianism. I have many friends who promote vegetarianism. But I do not like the propaganda they do to promote vegetarianism.
It is a subject of discussion that a vegetarian person is peaceful or not. The propagandist vegetarians say that vegetarian diet makes a person peace loving. When I tell such propagandist that Adolf Hitler was a vegetarian, they simply deny that he was.
The vegetarians and vegans are writing books and articles to prove that Hitler was not a vegetarian and he did not love animals.
Was Adolf Hitler a Vegetarian? If he was, and if vegetarians are considered as peaceful people, how come he was so cruel? Some questions to think on...
Yes, Hitler Was a Vegetarian....
Yes, Adolf Hitler was a vegetarian. He was not just a vegetarian, but also an animal lover, who hated hunting. There are many contemporary and first hand accounts of his being a vegetarian, and his distaste for meat.
Following quotes of Adolf Hitler are very important to know his views on vegetarianism:
"One thing I can predict to eaters of meat: the world of the future will be vegetarian"
"Meat eating is a perversion in our human nature,’ and that Christianity was a ‘symptom of decay’, since it did not urge vegetarianism...."
Paul Joseph Gobbels was one of the closest associates of Adolf Hitler. In his diary, he writes,
"Hitler is a committed vegetarian, and he believes that meat-eating is harmful to humanity"
According to Margot Woelk, a food taster of Adolf Hitler during war, all the food she tested was vegetarian and their was no meat or fish in Hitler's diet.
Hitler was not a born vegetarian. He became a vegetarian in 1931, and remained a vegetarian for life. The only animal products he ate were milk, butter and cheese.
Moreover, Hitler was a non-smoker and a non drinker. He hated these things and the people who were smokers and drinkers. He directed to impose ban on use of Tobacco. Accordingly tobacco ban was imposed in Nazi Germany.
Hitler's Love For Animals
According Neugeist/Die Weisse Fahne, a German magazine of the New Thought movement, Adolf Hitler was a vegetarian. He did not eat meat as he loved animals. He was exemplary friend of animals and ardent opponent of torturing them.
An eyewitness told to The Nazis: a Warning from History, a BBC series, that while watching movies Hitler did not like cruelty to animals or even death of an animal in the film. He was so sensitive about this that he used to cover his eyes during such scenes.
But on the other hand, he loved to watch scenes of animal killing people in movies.
Hitler used to spend a lot of time with his dogs. He loved birds and wolves. Not only Hitler, but most of the Nazi leaders loved animals.
Soon after coming to power in 1933, Nazis passed a law to regulate slaughter of animals. Vivisection was banned. Laws to protect wildlife were also passed. In 1934, an International Conference on Animal Protection was held in Berlin.
Nazis were pioneers of making laws for animal protection.
One can say that Adolf Hitler was the Vegetarian of Century. He deserves that award. Unfortunately, there was no organizations like PETA to honor him.
This Hub is not written to hurt the sentiments of the vegetarians and vegans. Remember that I am a staunch vegetarian and I promote vegetarianism. My intention is just to show the facts about Hitler's diet.
I do not believe that all vegetarians are kind people and all meat eaters are cruel ones. Diet is not the sole factor in behavior changes. Just observe the people you know in the society and you will find many kind meat eaters and cruel vegetarians.
