Anonymous said: My Aunt attended this 1938 Nazi Rally in Nuremburg. She describes her experience in my book "How I Saw Hitler on my Summer Vacation." If you would like to read the book, you can download it to your Kindle for $2.99, or I can send you a copy if you are in the United States. Kathy in Wisconsin

boo I don’t have a Kindle, but I’ll look into finding a hard copy (love me some hard copy books) because the synopsis sounds interesting—that must have been a bit of a frightening experience, she sure picked a hell of a time to visit Europe.

Thanks for the message Kathy :)

Also, if anyone is interested, the book.
