What A Silly Little Third Reich

| Portland, OR, USA | Learning | February 11, 2016

(My class is doing our final discussion on the genocide, the conversation has brought its way around to why the German people followed Hitler. When it is my turn, I seem very professional and knowledgeable, until I get to the end.)

Me: “I think that people began to follow Hitler because the people that were higher up followed him first. Like a trend in high school. Like when someone popular wears something and soon everyone is wearing it. Like in elementary school when everyone began wearing and trading silly bands.”

(Pause.)

Other Student: “Did you just compare Hitler to silly bands?”
