Were any of them decent politicians in their own right, or were they just all generic Hitler clones?
Can we have a discussion about Dante's inferno? How it related to Plato, Aristotle, Genesis, Exodus, Job, Augustine and Boethius?
Why are the contributions of America to WWII so drastically over-stated in history textbooks?
It seems like there are a large contingent of the population who think Germany was on the verge of winning the war until America joined and pushed them back.
Because from the western front things actually looked grim and difficult for the Allies before D-Day. Of course the Soviet's, despite difficulties, had been mostly successful for at least a year.
U.S involvement in Europe is mainly important for balancing power against the Soviet Union. It's very likely the Soviets would have declared control over all Nazi occupied lands, which would have been most of Europe without U.S involvement.

What was "degenerate" art? When the creator's ethnic group was obviously non-German it's self-explanatory, but what about the ethnic Germans whose art and music were banned? And why was Arno Breker in particular considered to be the opposite of it?
What is the black stone comprised of, what does it signify, and what is inside the kaaba
>What is the black stone comprised of
there has never been any studies of it because it would require intentionally chipping off pieces of it and that would be considered sacrilege

>In 1674, according to Johann Ludwig Burckhardt, someone smeared the Black Stone with excrement so that "every one who kissed it retired with a sullied beard". The Shi'ite Persians were suspected of being responsible and were the target of curses from other Muslims for centuries afterwards, though explorer Sir Richard Francis Burton doubted that they were the culprits; he attributed the act to "some Jew or Greek, who risked his life to gratify a furious bigotry.
Literally smeared with shit

The only reason the soviets won is the lend lease arrangement. Without America they would have eventually lost. Plus some lucky breaks & the weather. None of the above shows Russian strength. Photo kind of related
