The Mind of Hitler
I ran across this crazy video tonight: it turns out that American soldiers seized a bunch of private videos of Hitler, filmed by his mistress Eva Braun. It turns out these are the only videos we have of Hitler's private life, as opposed to when he was on stage madly yelling, so they could be important for history to understand Hitler's mindset and motivations. They were silent, though, until a team of expert lip readers and some special software were put together recently to figure out what Hitler is talking about in these videos. These are very strange videos, with Hitler playing with babies and little dogs, strangely chilling in their mediocrity. Watch it.
