Adolf Hitler and Russian leader Stalin were possessed by the Devil, the Vatican’s chief exorcist has claimed.
The Exorcist IV: Hitler v. Stalin!
Father Gabriele Amorth who is Pope Benedict XVI’s ‘caster out of demons’ made his comments during an interview with Vatican Radio.
Father Amorth said: “Of course the Devil exists and he can not only possess a single person but also groups and entire populations.
“I am convinced that the Nazis were all possessed. All you have to do is think about what Hitler – and Stalin did. Almost certainly they were possessed by the Devil.
Well, and a devilish case of hypoglycemia. Stalin, though, he was just a mass-murdering fuckhead.
…And in other Holy Roman WWII news:
A collection of 13th Century letters, found among the belongings of a US World War II veteran, has been returned to Poland.
Some of the letters were written by popes and date as far back as 1256.
They were discovered by Philip Gavin from Wisconsin after the death of his father, George Gavin, who brought them home as a souvenir of the war.
They are from the archives of Wroclaw, south-western Poland, which was the German city of Breslau before WWII.
They were handed over in a box by Neal Pease, history professor at the University of Wisconsin, to Wladyslaw Stepniak, deputy director of the Polish national archives, at Warsaw airport on Monday.
“We are very, very grateful. These letters are of great value to us,” Mr Stepniak told Associated Press news agency.
Sweet, isn’t it? You imagine a young US serviceman, just this kid, probably, finding them as he marched through Poland after the war… Probably thought they looked really neat and tucked them into his pack. But then a little fact about the end of the war starts to tickle the back of your mind…
Mr Gavin said his father had found the documents in the mud by a burned-out train in Austria.
