Interesting piece by Timothy Ryback. In the spring of 1945, in a German salt mine, soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division (now where have I heard that name recently?) discovered 3,000 books belonging to Adolf Hitler. More than a thousand of them are now in the Library of Congress. Ryback claims that the books–and their marginalia–reveal Hitler’s deep and disturbing interest in religion and theology. Hmmm… Pity the 101st didn’t display the same concern for Baghdad’s ancient libraries.
