Hitler Didn't Pay Income Taxes (in German)

I won't translate the whole article, but the gist is that, at the time he became chancellor in 1933, Hitler owed approximately 400,000 RM in back taxes. In December 1934, his delinquent tax bill was wiped out and his records were sealed ("unter Verschluss"). As the investigator who uncovered the Munich tax administration documents put it: "Hitler preached to the people that the common good goes before self-interest, but he himself acted otherwise" ("Hitler predigte dem Volk, Gemeinwohl gehe vor Eigennutz, und handelte selbst gegenteilig").

If that wasn't bad enough,there is some evidence that he was a child molester.

The more you hear and read about Hitler and his family,the more weird etc they appear to have been!

@joefromchicago,
I wonder how much money that really was back then. Wasn't Germany hit with hyperinflation postWW1 and definitely even more so postglobal Great Depression?

400,000 RM (is that the same as Deutsche Marks?) probably wasn't very much given how terribly weak their currency was those years.
