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.

  1. Eva Braun says:

    I am so glad to finally see someone treating my little liebchen fairly!

    You’d be surprised how many people try to paint poor Dolphie with broad brush and make him out to be something he was not. I mean, you exterminate a few million people and the next thing you know, everyone is making you out to be the kind of monster who puts ketchup on eggs or eats peanut butter sandwiches with mayonnaise. What kind of decent human being would do such a thing? Not my Dolphie, that’s for sure!

    I’m just glad there are wonderful people like you out there setting the record straight!

    Thank you, from both of us.
