Author Jonathan Maxwell gave us a look into his book "Murderous Intellectuals, German Elites and Nazi SS." We learned how Hitler had some very intellectual people in the Nazi SS. Some of these intellectuals were very creative in coming up with ways to kill and dispose of the Jews in the concentration camps. We explored Hitler's personality and found him to be an average student at best who didn't even complete high school. Despite Hitler's limited education, he was a very charismatic speaker who attracted people far smarter than himself to his cause. This book also explored the personalities, educational backgrounds and sadistic acts of some of the higher ranked Nazi SS men. A must read book.
