History is a great learning tool. And there are many inaccurate historical stories out there that are flaunted as fact. The truth is that history is written by the victors. And many use it as a propaganda tool even to this day to milk others.

BERLIN (Reuters) – Adolf Hitler personally intervened to protect a Jewish man who had been his commanding officerduring World War One, according to a letter unearthed by the Jewish Voice from Germany newspaper.

The letter, composed in August 1940 by Heinrich Himmler, head of the Nazis‘ feared paramilitary SS, said Ernst Hess, a judge, should be spared persecution or deportation “as per the Fuehrer‘s wishes.”
