How is the quote "Hasn't it occurred to you yet that we are serving a mass murderer [Adolf Hitler]?" significant or important?

  • Social Studies - ,

    Of course Hitler was behind the mass murder of 6 million Jews in the Holocaust. However, the significance or importance of that quote depends upon who said it and when.

  • Social Studies - ,

    It was said by a superior officer in 1943 or 1944 (during WWII). The officer had said it to a soldier. Both were Nazis.

  • Social Studies - ,

    We tend to assume that ordinary Germans, including soldiers, didn't know about the Holocaust. This quote shows that many or most of them did know about the state-established mass murders. At that time, uttering such words could have been considered treason, though.
