This snippet that appeared in CLICK MAGAZINE during the early months of 1944 supports the argument posed by journalist Gerard Williams and the investigators on the program "Hunting Hitler" . It stated that a Nazi insider had defected to London where he informed British intelligence of a Nazi plan to launch a third world war from the confines of, it was assumed, another country.

"Numbers hardly count in estimating the book-burning festival in Germany on May 10 ....Reports range from an estimate of hundreds to tens of thousands of books burned."
American columnist Walter Lippmann of the NEW YORK HERALD TRIBUNE wrote:
"They symbolize the moral and intellectual character of the Nazi regime. For these bonfires are not the work of schoolboys or mobs but of the present German Government acting through its Minister of Propaganda and Public Enlightenment."

One of the kindest things you could possibly say about the Nazis is that they were "sexists" - and if you wanted to back your thesis up with anecdotes, facts and figures, you would read the attached article from 1933:
"To say that woman's place is in the home is understatement, so far as Adolf Hitler is concerned. Certainly she's not to be allowed in the library. Intellectual life, as well as all business and legal affairs, is a purely masculine enterprise in the Third Reich. And the women, most of them, in hysterical devotion to their leader, obey. Mr. Quentin Reynolds, in a series of brilliant pictures, presents the women of modern Germany; triumphant and desperate."
The Nazis were not too chauvinistic: 10% of the jobs in your average concentration camp were filled by women.

"Many of the jokes that are at present circulating the land of Hitleria cannot be told quite openly. They are whispered among friends. The traffic is great and much whispering going on. Many people want to laugh. It seems a necessary release..."
- so observed one journalist fresh from his whirlwind journey through Hitler's Germany. He could not help but notice how painfully neurotic the Reich leadership was of being the object of Teutonic derision. This article is about the underground society of whispered jokes that the Nazis created; the journalist was good enough to write-up a few so that the free-world could take place in the chuckle-fest (some were lost in translation).
