That really needs a new, shorter name. If you even know this section exists then thanks for sticking around, and also hope you're sitting comfortable because it's a long one today. First off I really hope I didn't offend anyone. Talking about Hitler is always interesting I feel. He's so often portrayed (even during WWII) in a comedic manner that you can forget he was a real person. Who did horrific things. So yes while sometimes I may have show Hitler in my video in a funny way please remember that what he did was not a joke and I was in no way trying to make fun of his awful actions. Secondly. Do you like sources? Do you like further reading? Well you are in luck as this video has a sources and further reading section! I've been requested a couple times now to have this and I came across so many interesting articles and essays while researching this one I thought why not share with you all. Enjoy!

Now let's talk about the elephant in the room with this video, or should I say zebra in the room, at least one of you are going to mention it. Yes I pronounce zebra zeebra and not like zedbra as I should do as a Brit. Why did I make this decision. Well my audience is primarily American so it's good to keep the majority happy, but also that's how I would say it anyway. Zee just sounds better than zed, maybe it's all the American shows I watched growing up but I dunno. I've just always preferred zee over zed. It rhymes with the rest of the alphabet!
