Who is the Most Unforgettable and Unforgivable Leader in History?

Let’s find out why this man is regarded as the worst criminal in history.

There are so many nation leaders who can be considered as unforgettable like Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the US, JFK, and who could ever forget George Washington, the first president of the United States of America. We can also include in this list Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the man with the longest term of office in the history of the US presidency, Winston Churchill of Great Britain, Nelson Mandela of South Africa, The Dalai Lama of Tibet and many others.

There are also many nation leaders who can be considered as unforgivable. First on the list is of course, no other than the former president of Iraq, Saddam Hussein, he occupied Kuwait and believed to have ordered the torture and killing of about 600,000 people, Idi Amin of Africa who was discovered to be a cannibal upon his death when his fridge were found out to be full of human flesh. There’s Deng Xiaoping of China, who ordered the massacre of thousands of student protesters during his regime, and many others.

But who can be considered as unforgettable and at the same time, unforgivable nation leader? I couldn’t think of any other person who can be called as the most unforgettable and unforgivable leader in History but Adolf Hitler.

Who could ever forget the Holocaust? Three scores and three years had past but this infamous event in the history of mankind still have a great impact on our lives most especially to the families of those millions of Jews who were tortured and put to death by mass killings in different unimaginable manners. Many were killed in extermination camps, especially built by the Germans for the mass killing of the Jews. These camps were equipped with gas chambers and crematoria capable of killing and cremating thousands of people in a day, million others were slowly worked to death as slave labor.

Why did Hitler order the killings of these people? He wanted to rid Germanic life of all Jewish influence. Hitler hated the Jews very much. When the Nazi came to power in 1933, Jews were dismissed from the civil service and banned from certain fields, such as law, medicine, and teaching. The government also encouraged boycotts of Jewish-owned businesses. In 1935 the Nazis enacted the Nuremberg laws, which stripped Jews of their citizenship and forbade them to marry non-Jews.

The systematic slaughter of European Jews by the Nazi regime of Adolf Hitler in Germany during World War II popularly known as the Holocaust, killed some six million Jews out of the nine million Jews living in Germany and German-occupied territories. The Germans also killed about five million Gypsies and Slavs, who like the Jews, were considered undesirable.

So who can be considered as the most unforgettable and most unforgettable nation leader in the world? It’s no other than Adolf Hitler. As a matter of the fact, he is considered as the worst criminal in the History of mankind, killing more than eleven million Jews, Slavs, and Gypsies combined aside from the million casualties of World War II which he also initiated.

    Nice article, but I’m not actually sure I’d say Hitler was the worst. There have been loads of other pretty terrible leaders, such as Stalin (any idea how many of his own people he had killed during the Purges), Pol Pot etc. The list continues, and that doesn’t really take into account the church during the Inquisition…not exactly Western Society’s best moment.
    Great article though!

    thanks, i would consider Stalin as one of the worse but not the worst, there were no exact figures how many of his countrymen were killed during his regime and i don’t think it will surpassed the number of people ordered to be killed by Hitler .though i believe that he(stalin)is one of the most hated person in history.
    thanks

    No doubt he was a horrible murderer and leader, someone who should not have been in a position of authority. He is definitely a horrid blemish on our history throughout the ages.

    Horrible is horrible and I think we need to diminish infamy by lessening the ‘credit’ given to awful people. They are not heroes but criminals.

    I agree Stalin and Hitler are the very lowest of the low. Who could even imagine such atrocities. The othere are horrible to think about and there are others unnamed. How in the world do such beings come about. I don’t think we can even guess.

    Eh, it’s possible. As far as worst criminals in history who may even be more notorious than Hitler, I have to say Ghenghis Khan. Even 800 years later, people still know of him rather well. I mean, after all, him and his successors killed about 10-30,000,000 people, perhaps as much as 7-8% of the world’s entire population at the time. In 800 years will people still know of Hitler when those who remember his reign have all passed? Perhaps, but one cannot know for certain.

    That is simply wrong. Adolf Hitler was an impeccable leader. His empire was outstanding in the time he took for him to acquire it. His fan base,and birth of “Hitler-youth” was BRILLIANT. Of course he was extremely corrupted with power, and i am all too aware of the evils he committed and approved, but no doubt in my mind he was one of the greatest leaders of all time. Its not like he just took power, the people gave it to him. He was adored and that was much of the German’s fault. He wrote a book years before he was even in power and he told what all of his plans were when be gained power. The people of Germany were so brainwashed into their belief in superiority, they let a crazy man on a mission tear apart their country, building an evil empire. It is not all the peoples fault, but they didn’t do anything to stop Hitler’s rule, they praised his leadership. You can hardly call it praise…demanded, begged. Yes, he may not have done at all great things, and was probably an extremely troubled mind, but he was still a brilliant one in how fast he acquired the power he wanted from the people. It was almost too easy. There’s a big difference between a good leader and a leader who did good.

    hey Madeline:

    I understand where your coming from, kinda like what the first Harry Potter book said about Voldemort, that the things he did were terrible, but they were great. But I must disagree with you. Sure, the line between genius and insanity is a pretty fine line, I have trouble finding it myself, but Hitler was a bit more than “extremely corrupted by power” as you put it. There is a such thing as pure eviil in the world. And as for a difference between a good leader and a leader who did good, I’m pretty sure that the definition of a good leader involves NOT starting a global war in which your country is utterly defeated, beaten down, you commit suicide, your enemies divide your country in sections for themselves, and everyone on the planet for the rest of history remembers you as a crazed, murdering motherf***er.

    “First on the list, of course”?? Saddam Hussein?? Why’s that, because everyone knows who he is maybe? It’s insulting that people so easily forget about Stalin and Mao who were collectively responsible for the deaths of around 70-80 million people!

    the article cries for the thousands killed in Kuwait and Uganda. Y no remembrance of the millions dead at Hiroshima and Nagasaki? In Korea and Vietnam! What about Catholic Church?Weren’t those killed human? The bias are not acceptable and had some hidden agenda behind it…

    I’d say Mao as the worst. Yep, Adolf Hitler sure was a jerk and a really racist bastard. However, yea sorry to say but I do have to point out one good thing WW2 did bring.. The rocket engine. Hitlers scientists were genius. Without them, the turbine engine airplanes and super fast fighter planes might never got built. That is, however, the only good thing that came with WW2. But Mao, “The Great Step Forward.” Wouldn’t call it that, more “Starving of 45 million or more innocent Chinese.” Hes less known than Hitler, since WW2 was over most of the world, and Mao was just in China, but nevertheless, Mao is a bigger ass than Adolf. I now see a George Joseph going on with the nuclear bombing of Japan, which yes, was cruel but most likely necessary to stop Japan. After all, Japan brought USA into the war in the first place.
