      I believe that Hitler was a disciple of Satan his cruel and inhumane ways cause so much pain and suffering. I hope his soul is unsettled for each life he took and destroyed. A friend of mine's mother is 83 and she lived in England during the bombings in WWII she was a little girl and she was Jewish. Her mother and father's family were in Poland and did not survive the concentration camps! She still tells the story just like it was yesterday.:(
