February 25, 2010
I'm reading a biography of Eva Braun, the woman that wed Hitler hours before they committed suicide together. Diary excerpts are included in the book. On some of Hitler's most historically significant dates, Eva wrote diary entries that say only that he didn't call that day, and she was very disappointed. She was so obsessed with who Hitler was in her life that she was blind to who Hitler was in the world. His affairs with Poland were of no gain to her, and therefore no interest. She missed out on understanding a lot of Hitler's character because of this self-centeredness. I need to know God in the world, not just my world.
