How to Find the Most Authentic Novels on the Life of Hitler?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Adolf Hitler might have been a ruthless dictator, but no one can deny that his life was interesting. Trying to know how his mind worked when he propagated the necessity of massacring thousands of innocent Jewish lives is a study in psychology. However, since Hitler was an intensely private person as well, authors across the world have often resorted to imagining and reimagining his life through their works. The last days of Hitler have been the subject of much speculation and how the dictator had probably spent his last days in the bunker, often giving rise to multiple myths.

Novels based on the life of the Fuhrer and the Second World War are characterized by dark undertones and raise existential questions about the futility of human lives. To imagine how the Jewish lived their lives during that period and the trauma of those who survived the Holocaust is no mean feat.

The novels might be works of fiction, but they are often based on facts acquired through years of research on Hitler, his Nazi propaganda, and the socio-political conditions in Germany, along with its supporting countries Italy and Japan, linked together due to the Tripartite Pact.

How to Find the Right Novels on Hitler?

Every book ever written on Hitler deals predominantly with the effects that his ideology had on the nation, which eventually changed the history of the world. While non-fiction books were written on Hitler dealing with the facts during and in the aftermath of the Second World War, the novels often bring the writer’s subjectivity into play as they each try to understand the individual’s psyche.

Most novels written during the reign of Hitler have a young boy or a girl at the center of the narrative trying to find the meaning of existence in a world ravaged by war. For example, the novel, Hitler’s Boat, is a haunting love story set in 1940′s Berlin. It paints a moving picture of how the war affected the lives of star-crossed lovers.

The post-apocalyptic nature of the novel provides different perspectives on the same problem. So when you start searching for novels written on Hitler, try to find out more about the book rather than the theme.

How Do Writers Treat the Subject Matter?

The writers who have written novels based on Hitler or during the Second World War years have often been fascinated by how Germany functioned at that time.

The sheer persuasive power of a single person’s speech had influenced a nation enough to believe that it was a necessity to wipe out a certain section of the population from the face of the planet just because they did not belong to the pure race. Each writer on the subject had probably spent years trying to uncover facts and details about this person and the Nazi idealism he propagated.

Most of the writers are essayists and research scholars in their right. One glance at the novel’s acknowledgment section is enough to reveal the names of places they have gone to and the number of people they have approached to uncover facts about the Fuhrer, sometimes, often at great personal risks.

Understanding the Nazi Philosophy

At times, the books attempt to understand how the officers of the Nazi army responded to their commands. Many have wondered how they answered their conscience after driving tens and thousands of people to their deaths in the Holocaust. Families were torn apart, and children tried to prosecute anyone who was shown to be sympathetic towards the Jewish.

Tales of people trying to smuggle children away under the hood of their cars or station wagons have since surfaced. The Fuhrer could not have done what he did unless he had the support of his officers, and writers have often tried to understand what made them act in that way, obeying a dictator who had no regard for human life. The officers who gave their lives fighting for Germany in the war left behind grieving families, with the subsequent generations often loathing their forefathers for what they had done.

Speaking to these families to gather first-hand evidence is like reliving a traumatic experience. Still, it helps in shedding life to this very problematic phase in history and the last days of Hitler. The Nazi philosophy had penetrated so deep that it was perhaps impossible to differentiate between right and wrong anymore.

Reading novels on Hitler today can help identify the patterns of an emerging dictatorship and show how to thwart it before it can cause much damage. Above all, they teach to value human lives and gain insight to prevent catastrophic events like the World Wars, which can change history all over again.
