    I just wanted to know if any one could answer this for me. Did Hitler ever show any remorse in his life for any thing? Yes I know he was crazy but humans usually show remorse. So did he ever show remorse in his life a the Leader of Nazi Germany?

    Thanks for any help you can give :cool:

    Not that is recorded that I'm aware of. His will as he prepared to shoot himself in the bunker apparently includes a rant about how the German people deserved to be wiped out because by losing the war they had proven themselves inferior to the Soviets.

    Late in his life he was very susceptible to moodswings, but even so, as far as I know they didn't include remorse for his actions: he tended to blame peoples as a whole, as he had always done, or he claimed to have been betrayed (and when he was, in July 1944, Hitler's revenge cost 5000 lives).

    I dont think Hitler showed any remorse he blamed all his problems on other people, for example when the generals weren't doing exactly what he wanted he got angry and ended up taking controll of much of the planning. that was also a downfall for germany as he was not very good, just like Goering not very good at the tactical side.

    Rudolph Hess, in all his years in prison, never once stated anything like regret for what the Nazis did. He often stated the reverse.

    (Just as an indication)

    but then again, how much did Hess knew about what the nzai's did. he was captured in england in 1940 (or was it 41?). so, he didn't knew what the Nazi's were doing to the jews and that sort of things.
    so hess isn't a good example

    And apparently I would be wrong on the official verdict at least...

    "Rudolf Hess was sentenced to life and was still in Spandau Prison when he was found dead on 17th August, 1987. Officially he committed suicide but grave doubts have been raised about the possibility of a 93 man in his state of health being able to hang himself with an electrical extension cord without help from someone else."

    From what I know he was always intoxicated on pills givin to him by his doctor/s , and he was also showing signs of Parkinsons disease.

    Its hard to show remorse when you don't think you did anything wrong,like many dictators he thought he was doing the right thing, he didn't consider a majority of the people he was hurting "human" he considered many vermin and "rough copies" of humans.Weird , Hitler thought the killing of animals was wrong , which is why he was a vegetarian, so he did have feelings.

    Many hunting activities were banned in Nazi Germany.

    Strange isn't it - we must not kill poor little animals, but with people we can systematically murder entire communities. :roll:

    Guys, i think on paper we will not find any records of him ever feeling remorse. But seriously, being human,we can only wonder at what he feels inside of him but had not showed. Afterall,some man rather die than admit their mistakes as i am sure many of us on this forum are.*winks* haha. But seriously,he's dead and in hell according to my religious beliefs anyway....so i tend to think he would have repented in hell but a bit too late

    I know he didn't like flowers; a man who doesn't like flowers cannot feel remorse.

    But he did feed Blondie poison to see if it worked.

    Or maybe he wanted to spare Blondie from the Gulag?

    defenetly the last one, ricky :p

    hitler really loved blondie, so i can't imagine that he would kill his dog just as a test. but then again, how normal his Hitler when it comes to love for animals and trying to save them?
    (imagine that hitler didn't killed himself and was released from prison, would he become a member of greenpeace :lol:
    lebensraum, jawohl, lebensraum for all the german animals :grin: :grin:
