I am anxious to read Rynn Berry's next work, Richard Wagner: Neither Vegetarian Nor Great Musician. I really do believe that meat-eating turns people, by virtue of its dark magical properties, into nothing but despicable, evil, creatures with an ear for bad music and a penchant for anti-Semitism. In fact, I think Wagner might have eaten people. And so did Hitler. Oh no! I think he ate Jewish people! And I believe he did so because he believed he could become more Aryan by defecating dead people of Semitic origin. Sorry if this offends some of you, but I'm just stating facts. And they ARE facts, because I read them somewhere. Very simple and no actual research necessary
In point of fact, these are all facts because I stated them as such and I just know Rynn Berry would think so too. And if he disagreed with any of it, I would change my point of view, because he is a master scholar and a genius.
In case anyone didn't notice, this is a critique in the form of a parody. And any resemblance of the characters to actual persons, living or dead (or involved with ancient aliens or holocaust denialists), is entirely ridiculous, totally intentional, and not at all a coincidence. For those of you who know how to use your brains and your sense of humor, thank you for reading. I expect to have this comment removed for reasons of our unspoken anti-parody laws.

According to 95 year old Margot Woelk, in the 2 1/2 years that she tasted food for Hitler he ONLY ate vegetarian food and NEVER meat. As Hitler's food taster she has a VERY intimate knowledge of what he ate. She's still alive,(as of 2013.) She was there. I believe what she says over all of the second and third hand "evidence" offered up by everyone else.
If you want non-fiction about Hitler's diet just point your search engine to Margot Woelk, Hitler's food taster.
Don't know about Hitler's views on animals . . . yet, but I'm thinking that his vegetarian self didn't try to kill an entire group or breed of animals like he did us humans so . . . he obviously treated animals much better than he did humans. It wouldn't surprise me to find that he did "love" animals.
There are billions of good people who eat animals.
There are billions of good people who don't eat animals.
There are millions of bad people who eat animals.
There are millions of bad people who don't eat animals.
Not eating animals does not = good.
Good does not = not eating animals.
Being a vegetarian does not make anyone a good person or a bad person either for that matter. Good and bad has nothing to do with what you eat . . . with the possible exception of cannibals ;)

Format: Paperback
Hitler was indeed an animal lover, a vegitarian, and rabidly anti smoking. The author here just tries hard to discount what those around Hitler had to say about him. The author never met Hitler, nor did he find any proof that those who knew Hitler lied about his being a vegitarian animal lover. This book is a typical political revisionist effort to distance progressives from Hitler.

This is an except from a New York Times editorial about Hitler written around 1940:

"In any argument over the merits of vegetarianism someone inevitably mentions Adolf Hitler. In a 1937 profile of Hitler in the New York Times the author observed that it was “well known that Hitler is a vegetarian,” but also indicated he ate milk, eggs, and ocasionally meat."

In fact, vegetarians were persecuted by the Nazi Empire:

"Moreover, during the Reich, vegetarians were forbidden to organize new groups or to start publications. A leading vegetarian magazine, Vegetarian Warte, suspended publication in Frankfurt in 1933. A competing journal, The Vegetarian Press, was allowed to limp along during the Nazi years, but it was severely hamstrung: It was prohibited from using the term “vegetarian movement,” and it was barred from publishing the time and place of vegetarian gatherings.

Consequntly,vegetarians, willing to run the risk of imprisonment or worse, were compelled to meet in secret. Hitler outlawed the Mazdean society—which was based on the vegetarian teachings of Zoroaster—ostensibly because its president, Dr. Rauth, was Jewish. But all other vegetarian societies were declared illegal and were forced to become members of the German Society for Living Reform. Members of these former vegetarian societies were subject to searches in their homes; during these raids, the Gestapo even confiscated books that contained vegetarian recipes. While he was chancellor, Hitler did nothing to advance the cause of vegetarianism in Germany. With a stroke of his pen he could have made vegetarianism the dietary law of the land. Instead, he did everything he could to thwart it."

Format: Paperback
Why folks would WANT to say that the diet was vegetarian is another issue; it's difficult for anyone - layperson or historian - to know what happened ~70 years ago (like claiming that Jesus was vegetarian). How strong is the evidence or either position, and is Hitler's vegetarianism what's at issue in modern discussions of the health or animal rights reasons for being vegetarian? I think not, and I think it's a distraction.

But hey, in the recent slurry of slams against Rynn Berry (at NYC's The New School), look at the would-be critics' spelling and grammar in the growing number of online sites where they want to make the claim that Hitler was vegetarian. IMO, these postings seldom show evidence of any careful work, meticulous editing and reconsideration of the evidence THEY have. Some of them do, however, and that's where criticisms are to be met, considered, and analyzed. But is that the bulk of the 'activity' on these sites (even Wikipedia articles are being disputed on this topic)? Where are the Wikipedia super-editors?

'Who yells the loudest?' seems to be everywhere in evidence. Oh, my! Readers could try to draw their own conclusions by purchasing this book and reading it carefully, thoughtfully, analytically, AND, OF COURSE, COMPARATIVELY (with other relevant writings on the same topic).
