This week, billions of Christians around the world will celebrate Easter. But today is a special day too.
Today — April 20th — is Hitler’s birthday! Have you forgotten? The Fuehrer would have been 122 years young today! Aren’t you celebrating? As I explain in my book “Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy,” during Hitler’s 12-year reign, people across Germany twisted themselves into veritable pretzels to praise the Fuhrer on his birthday! It was a day of national celebration.
How things change! Today Hitler’s name is synonymous with evil. What a spectacular reversal of fortune.
