GERMAN and Israeli diplomats say they are shocked that a group of Singapore high school students have chosen Adolf Hitler for the their team name and idol at a leadership camp.
The afternoon tabloid, The New Paper, last week reported the students regarded the man who started World War II and masterminded the Holocaust as their hero because of his leadership qualities, and even described him as handsome.
"We like him. He led Germany and was very good although he was evil," the newspaper quoted the group's leader, an un-named 15-year-old female student, as saying in Saturday's edition.
