Quote of the Day

 Nevile Henderson, the British ambassador in Berlin, on returning to London as war began:
“It would be idle to deny the great achievements of the man who restored to the German nation its self-respect and its disciplined orderliness … Many of Herr Hitler’s social reforms, in spite of their complete disregard of personal liberty of thought, word or deed, were on highly advanced democratic lines.”

 Hitler’s “labour camps”, Henderson thought, showed how “a benevolent dictatorship” works.
