The FBI vs Hitler
In return for their lives, Nazis were ‘forced’ to continue where they left off, overseeing and being personally involved in the mass murder and torture of Poles, Jews, Gypsies and many Eastern Europeans. In this way Stalin got a ready made task force who were only too eager to both serve and train others in their methods. Hitler might well have been dead, but his legacy lived on for decades. As for the FBI, they profited by being able to add several hundred names, addresses and other details to their database, as they opened files on each and every person who wrote to them. By corresponding with the FBI you ensured to be permanently on their books and on their records, so those who valued their privacy saw it eliminated just by reporting that they’d heard from a guy who knew a guy named ‘Jack’ who said he once saw Hitler in the Sands in Las Vegas, shooting craps with Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin.
