Hitler’s Table Talk: An Update

New developments have been inspired by my exposing certain Hitler quotes as bogus! It all started with a $50 research job for the Freedom from Religion Foundation at Dan Barker’s behest. Dan asked me to check the original German of three Hitler quotes Christians kept throwing at him. That sent me down an unexpected rabbit-hole…
