In 1957 Paula Hitler's published a statement in support
of her brother: Translated from the original German by Gerry Frederics, the
sister of the German leader wrote the following statement 12 years after the
death of her brother. It makes more sense if one remembers that its content

"Gentlemen! - Never forget this: Your names will long be forgotten even
before your bodies have rotted away in the earth. But the name Adolf Hitler
will still be a light in the darkness.
You cannot murder him by drowning his memory in your sick-buckets and you
cannot strangle him with your filthy, ink-stained fingers. His name exists
