May 6, 1983

On May 6, 1983, the Hitler Diaries that were supposedly discovered by German illustrator Konrad Kujau were revealed as false and a hoax. The major point of contention that shouted to the investigators’ eyes was where Hitler wrote that he had discussed with his fiancé, Eva Braun, that wouldn’t it be nice if the cook would put just a little sugar into the cornbread mix, just like he does to the turnip greens. Not even Hitler would commit an act so sacrilegious as adding sugar to the cornbread mix, much less adding sugar to the turnip greens. Only a truly uncouth animal would do such a thing. Stalin. Stalin would have definitely done that.
