David Irving on Hitler's Admiration For Greeks
Recently David Irving had an interview with major Greek daily newspaper Eleftheros Typos
Here's an excerpt, from the man who can claim to have shaken more hands that have shaken Hitler's hand than any man alive today:
What is your opinion about the role of the Greece in the World War II?
Brave and honorable; Hitler had great admiration for the Greeks and for all that they had done for civilization, and he greatly disliked having to make war against Greece, as he told his staff (men like Walther Hewel, whose diary I have used); he instructed them that he wanted to treat the defeated Greek nation honourably. The Italians put pressure on him to act differently.
