  • Absolutely not.*
  • Nope =)
  • I believe he was never unfaithful to his wife.
  • How ever much one wants to think that Adolf Hitler never did anything good, it would be a bit naive to claim that straight out, also it depends on what you view to be a good thing. However the fact that he murdered and tortured a mass of innocent people overshadows any good he might have done.
  • He instituted a wide-spread physical fitness program into the educational system. Do I actually also have to point out that he was a mass-murdering fuck, or can we be adults about this?
  • Maybe the little amount of good that came out of the experiments he held on the Jewish people? But the fact that he was holding them and testing on them wasn't so great.
  • built an effective road system in Germany, created jobs, and affordable motoring through the development of the Volkswagen - the people's car.
  • Thanks to my violence class I could .. But Y/A wrote it better than I could: "I took a course on the Holocaust and while this may not necessarily be a good thing, one of the reasons why Hitler attracted so many followers was because of this something-for-everyone mentality. His regime started youth groups for children, union-type groups for men, womens groups, etc. He made people feel like they belonged, like they were special and were going to be an integral part of turning Germany into a world super power." http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080222195240AA8XXbX
  • Hitler's achievements: He was instrumental in building the autobahn (superhighway) system, as well as putting German industry back on its' feet following WW1 and the worldwide economic depression that followed it. What he did not tell the German people though, was that this was achieved by putting Germany on a war-economy footing, which had been planned by him for many years, and he was quoted as desiring world conquest as early as 1927, which was 6 years before he actually became Chancellor, and then sole leader (dictator) of the nation. This involved violation of the terms of the Treaty of Versailles, which Germany had signed following the end of war in 1918, and had limited the Reich to a small, defensive Army, and a very limited Naval and Air Force. http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_accomplishments_did_Hitler_achieve
  • yeah I can think of a few things.
  • Here in Germany you can find the memorials at almost every city where 15 and 16 year old soldiers were executed a few hours hours before US Forces occupied the city. These young soldiers fought against the allied forces and found out that they had nothing against them and so they tried to go home, sseing that the war was lost. Without any pity thousands of young boys this way were executed a few hours before the end of the war.
  • He gave us a great example of what to avoid.
  • Didn't he commit suicide? Does that count?
  • He loved his mom!
  • what cookie said but more: yes adolf hitler " experimented" on jews. he ordered medical experiments on jews, any disabeled people (such as down syndrome and mental illness, dwarfism and other pyhsical disability), gypsies and anti-nazi people too. it has enhanced the medicine, health care treatment and understanding of many conditions and treatments we now have in health care. these scientific and medical achievements and understanding in today would not have been so advanced, sadly to say. because people are wanting humane experiments, research and so on the now scientific and medical world are constantly hitting rules, regulasions and walls of opposision, so we are developing much slower in these areas.
  • Even a dispicable example is an example. He gave young men in America the desire to become snipers during WW2. Hopefully his example will eventually help us to keep our eyes open for other dirt bags such as North Korea's Kim Jung Ill and the current president of Iran Achmadinajab (probably spelled wrong).
  • He helped pull Germany out of their atrocious post-WWI/depression poverty.
  • Sure I can the 1 good thing he did was die
  • Under his dictatorship he gifted the UK and more specifically the US with German Jewish Uber scientists. They went on to invent nuclear power and weapons. America would not be the world super - power now if it weren't for Adolf's resettlement policies prior to the war. Technology was also advanced in the death - camps by the Nazi doctors. No one else would have dared use human guinea - pigs as test subjects in prototype decompression chambers for instance. He was also one of the world's first leaders to implement animal rights legislation. I know that's 3 good things, but I'm greedy - soz. By the way, I'm quite well aware that none of these facts hardly make up for him being instrumental in the deaths of 6 million innocent people though. I hope this goes some way to answering your excellent question.
  • The autobahn and the modern highway system..........
  • VW Bug
  • Not Hitler himself......But the the Nazi Germans did invent.... Volkswagen KdF computer, invented by Konrad Zuse 1941. Jet plane in 1939 by Heinkel Flugzeugwerke. The first manned rocket flight in 1945 (unfortunately it lasted only some seconds and pilot Lothar Sieber died) Nazi doctors, in line with their campaign for public health were the first to write a major scientific paper linking smoking with lung cancer, I believe smoking was even banned, for a brief time in the Luftwaffee. Nazis invented Nerve gasses Sarin and Tabun. Invented first effective automatic rifle, single person anti-tank weapons (precursors to RPGs). You can see some magnificant architecture by Speer that was planned in nearly any documentary on the man. Autobahns Stealth technolgy was invented by the Horten brothers during the Reich. Audio technology using magnetic tape was a Third Reich invention. Copying German tape recorders was how the famous American corporation Ampex got its start. Magnetic tape was also essential later for the video tape recorder. Allies hadn't a clue how the Axis was transmitting speeches and programs hours apart to different locations and having them sound "live." It was top of the list of technologies to capture as the war concluded. Management systems for keeping massive and complex development programs on track was another "invention" transferred to the US, along with its scientists and project managers. These systems allowed the Germans to have developments underway in numerous categories and perform them remarkably well. The Wankel engine, which is now referred to as the "rotary engine" was invented during the Third Reich. Mazda uses this engine extensively. Someone mentioned the Autobahnen as really an idea thought up during the Weimar Republic. Yes, but that brings to light another achievement, and that is simply the will and energy to put unemployed workers to work doing things that needed to be done, something the Weimar government was totally inept at doing. "Parliamentary chaos" combined with acquiescence to WWI reparations were the problems. Missile technology: Ground-to-ground, air-to-air, air-to-ground, ground-to-air, ship-to-ship, etc., using wire guidance, TV guidance, IR guidance (everything but laser quidance). Most of these missiles were not at the highest form of development, but their work launched and made a bundle of money later on for corporations like Boeing, Raytheon, Hughes Aircraft, North American Aviation (Rocketdyne Div.), etc. All of these companies had their German "Chief Scientist" heading up research and development operations. The promising IR technologies were mostly all developed during the Third Reich. They had "night vision" devices while the Allies were still wondering if such things were possible. Modern sewer treatment facilities are all derived from Third Reich technology. You've probably seen them with their settling ponds and huge skimmers. While the Englishman, Farnsworth, gets credit for the invention of a very rudimentary television, it was the Third Reich that perfected television and conducted the first broadcasting. Application of geophones for seismic wave detection was used for locating artillary. The "wishbone cannon" was invented and installed at Calais, France. It was destroyed before it was operable. The "rail gun" was another significant invention, which the US and SU copied. This weapon employes a series of ring magnets to propell a rail mounted projectile. The significant feature of this "gun" is that it can accelerate the projectile at a speed nearing infinity -- at least in theory. Conventional explosives are limited by their individual, finite rates of expansion and hence constrained in how fast they can make a projectile move. The intial "invention" of the Third Reich that made everything possible was the breaking away from the international banking system, which made its money on debt finance; i.e., usury. This act was probably the most important event which caused WWII to later occur. In the Thirties the German economy was booming and all sorts of new humane benefits were granted to workers. Elsewhere, deep economic depression was underway, and Roosevelt, for instance, really couldn't get things to moving until we went into a war economy mode. In all, 300,000 patents and copyrights were expropriated from Germany by the Allies after 1945. The Fischer-Tropsch process to produce synthetic fuels from coal, which fueled Germany's armed forces throughout the war. The dicovery of the ingesting of faecal bacteria to cure gut problems http://www.rense.com/general4/bac.htm Dr Morell used his Mutaflor to treat Hitler's foul smelling stools. And used today as Symbioflor http://www.biosym.dk/english/produkt_symbioflor.htm The chemical enhancing of soldiers' ability to fight http://www.rense.com/general34/enhance.htm During the Nazi era, German scientists and engineers either developed or greatly improved television, jet-propelled aircraft (including the ejection seat), guided missiles, electronic computers, the electron microscope, atomic fission, data-processing technologies, pesticides, and, of course, the world's first industrial murder complexes. The first magnetic tape recording was of a speech by Hitler, and the nerve gases Sarin and Tabun were Nazi inventions. Third Reich scientists also performed extensive work in the area of occupational carcinogenesis. Physicians documented the health hazards of asbestos, and in 1943 Germany became the first nation to recognize lung cancer and mesothelioma caused by asbestos inhalation as compensable occupational illnesses. Nazi Germany also pioneered what we now call experimental epidemiology: two striking papers -- a 1939 article by Franz H. Müller of Cologne, and a 1943 paper by Eberhard Schairer and Erich Schöniger of Jena -- presented the most convincing demonstrations up to that time that cigarettes were a major cause of lung cancer. Inflatable sex doll - Dr. Rudolf Chargeheimer, a psychiatrist appointed by Himmler to help develop the prototype, wrote that "the purpose and goal of the dolls is to relieve our soldiers. They have to fight and not to mingle with 'foreign women.'" The opiate drugs methadone (the heroin substitute) and pethidine (a powerful pain killer) were Nazi inventions. Our society, in fact Western society in general, absorbed as much of the Nazi technology and social control mechanisms as we could lay our grubby hands on. Turbine engines (the kind on airplanes and in powerplants), modern aircraft designs, rockets, superhighways, propaganda techniques, political manipulation, modern insecticides, nerve gas and audiotape are all Nazi inventions. We didn't invent them, and we weren't working on them at the same time. We took them from the Nazis wholesale (and we were entirely right to do so). Oddly, I'm not hearing anyone getting bent out of shape about the existence of freeways. http://billrushing.org/id169.html Much of what we know about hypothermia (re-warming techniques and cold-water suits) comes, chillingly, from Nazi medical experiments. http://www.jlaw.com/Articles/NaziMedEx.html Custom-designed, IBM-produced punch cards, sorted by IBM machines leased to the Nazis, helped organize and manage the initial identification and social expulsion of Jews and others, the confiscation of their property, their ghettoization, their deportation, and, ultimately, even their extermination. IBM's German subsidiary was Deutsche Hollerith Maschinen Gesellschaft, known by the acronym Dehomag. For example, one series of punch cards was designed to record religion, national origin, and mother tongue, but by creating special columns and rows for Jew, Polish language, Polish nationality, the fur trade as an occupation, and then Berlin, Nazis could quickly cross-tabulate, at the rate of 25,000 cards per hour, exactly how many Berlin furriers were Jews of Polish extraction. Railroad cars, which could take two weeks to locate and route, could be swiftly dispatched in just 48 hours by means of a vast network of punch-card machines. Indeed, IBM services coursed through the entire German infrastructure in Europe. Microwave cooking (necessary for troops in Russia) So not all bad........
  • He kept the trains running on time or was that Stalin?
  • He gave hope to the people of post-WWI Germany, before he took it all away by starting another war.
  • He fed his dog
  • Thanks for the interesting thread.
  • The best thing he ever did was his suicide:) Unfortunately much too late.
  • sure He died,best think he ever did +5
  • He recognized the need for ordinary citizens to have good inexpensive transportation, and pushed for the development of a reliable and inexpensive car, the folks-wagon (Volkswagen).
  • Comitted Suicide. He just waited years too long in my opinion.
  • He shot and killed the biggest piece of shit to ever walk the face of this planet...himself.
  • I think he had good intentions...with not good actions. It wasnt good for the whole, even though he thought he was doing good.
  • He commited suicide.
  • He never broke a promise.
  • He killed himself; just not soon enough.
  • from what I understand he was quite and extraordinary artist. He left behind some great scetches.
  • If Germany hadn't become Nazi, it would have gone Communist during the Depression. Hitler snatched power out of the hands of the Communists and attacked the Soviet Union before the Soviets could attack Germany. If he hadn't re-armed Germany and spent so much time fighting Stalin, the Communists would have rolled through Poland, Germany, France, down into Spain, and probably conquered Britain as well, leaving us with all of Europe under Communism during the Cold War--which would have become a hot war, and which we would have lost.
  • Didn't he make the Volkswagon Thing?
  • I think he built the Audubon, a beautiful highway running through Germany, it use to have no speed restrictions...
  • suicide
  • Volkswagon "Mein Kampf" treason genocide drugs surviving assassination attempts suicide failure
