Racist, anti-immigrant, demagogue pushes world into war 80-years ago today

Adolf Hitler and his Nazi Party rearmed Germany and signed strategic treaties with Italy and Japan to further Hitler's ambitions of world domination. Hitler’s invasion of Poland on September 1, 1939 drove Great Britain and France to declare war on Germany, and World War II began.
Over the next six years, the conflict would take more lives and destroy more land and property around the globe than any previous war. Among the estimated 45-60 million people killed were 6 million Jews murdered in Nazi concentration camps as part of Hitler’s diabolical “Final Solution,” now known as the Holocaust.
Remember the words of  philosopher George Santayana, "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
