James W. Loewen Quote

Ironically, Adolf Hitler displayed more knowledge of how we treated Native Americans than American high schoolers today who rely on their textbooks. Hitler admired our concentration camps for American Indians in the west and according to John Toland, his biographer, often praised to his inner circle the efficiency of America’s extermination—by starvation and uneven combat as the model for his extermination of Jews and Gypsies (Rom people).94
