On May 7th 1945 -one week after Adolf Hitler’s suicide in a Berlin bunker- his successor Karl Donitz authorized the surrender of Nazi Germany to the Allied Forces, which was signed by General Alfred Jodl.
Less than four years earlier, Germany, Italy, and Japan declared war against the United States…
Chaos would ultimately consume 28 countries and stretch from Great Britain to Russia; Sicily to Sweden… Encompassing more than 3-million square miles of territory.
Hitler’s Germany -controlling more than 20 different countries at its height- would lose it all, including 7 million lives, $23 billion in reparations paid to the Allies, and thousands of technology patents seized by US agents to help fight the looming Cold War.
In all, historians believe anywhere from 15-25 million people perished in Europe alone; more than twice as many than died in the First World War.
World War II was the most destructive event in history. 4-percent of the world’s population was wiped out. 80 million deaths. More than 60 million European civilians displaced, 27 million leaving their countries or driven out by force. 6 million Jews killed in concentration camps.
BOOKER GOES NUCLEAR: Cory Compares DHS Secretary to NAZIS, Trump to HITLER
New Jersey Senator Cory Booker continued his non-stop rampage against President Trump’s “tough talk” on immigration reform on Friday, breathlessly claiming DHS Secretary Nielsen was enabling Trump’s “racism,” adding “we know what happened in Europe” when leaders acted this way.
Booker was speaking with “The Breakfast Club” radio program when he was asked to comment on his recent rant against Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, where he “cried tears of rage” and labeled the DHS boss as “complicit” in Trump’s “racism.”
“People who stood by and did nothing when they hear bigotry are complicit in that bigotry. We know this from history and we know this from recent experiences in our communities, and it’s outrageous to see it in the highest office in the land,” said Booker.
“I don’t care who you are […] If you come after Jews, if you come after Muslims, if you come after Haitians, El Salvadorians, come after my fellow American citizens, I will not tolerate it,” he added.
“She should be the same way as opposed to just doing her job. We know what happened in Europe when people just did their jobs,” said the Senator.

LIFE IN 2021: Amazon Changes Phone Icon After Users Complained It Resembled Adolf Hitler
Worldwide retailer Amazon quietly changed a new icon on their phones this week after users on social media complained the image resembled Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler.
“Amazon has changed its new smartphone app logo after critics said the earlier incarnation was a dead ringer for Adolf Hitler,” reports the New York Post.
“Amazon first rolled out an update to the app’s icon in January, according to reporting from The Verge. The icon featured Amazon’s signature smiling arrow, but a jagged row of tape atop it made some users think of the Nazi dictator,” adds Business Insider.
Amazon has evidently made a slight adjustment to its app icon.
The cardboard box featured the iconic Amazon smile, but directly above that was a jagged piece of blue tape that evoked references to Adolf Hitler’s distinct mustache.
