Almost eighty years ago the people of Germany elected a traitor and ex-convict, Adolph Hitler, as chancellor and ushered in the rise of Nazism. With that election, the Germany set in motion a totalitarian government of facists who systematically oppressed and murder millions. They stole the peoples' monies, initiated WW II and when facing defeat, a few, ran like cowards to South America carrying their ill gotten loot with them.
