WW2: The second world war, 1939 to 1945. The genocide of many, minds, hearts and hope for humanity.
Hitler: (Adolf) – Denied to art college, so he became a spontaneous dictator. Slandering all differences and segregating our minds to a one way hate train. He became so popular to most of Germany that his hate broke peace and open minded ideals about faith. Shattering humanity’s will to chose other than his mindset.
