When Hitler Visited Canada's Vimy Memorial

During the Second World War, Canadian newspapers reported that the Nazi Germans had destroyed our war monument at Vimy Ridge.

But while the Germans did in fact destroy many historic French military sites, scrapping statues and rubbing out reminders of past defeats, Vimy was spared.

Hitler was even said to have admired the big Canadian landmark, imposing but with an elegant triumphal sweep.

To prove the allegations of destruction false, Hitler and his brass toured Vimy and the Nazi propaganda mill kicked in, cranking out their photographs. The above photo was intended to prove that the Vimy memorial had not been destroyed and the German media mocked what they considerd British war propaganda.


hitler should have got out of the house more often.
