In an attempt to defile the animal rights movement, meat, dairy and egg-eaters often proclaim that Hitler practiced vegetarianism. However, biographers Albert Speer and Robert Payne attested to Hitler’s love for liver dumplings, stuffed squab [pigeon], ham and sausage in the following books: Inside the Third Reich and The Life and Death of Adolf Hitler. German Chef Dione Lucas wrote about Hitler’s meat-eating in her Gourmet Cooking School Cookbook, published in 1964. Rynn Berry’s Hitler: Neither Vegetarian Nor Animal Lover describes how Goebbels, The Third Reich’s propaganda minister, tried to sell Hitler as a vegetarian to make him seem as peaceful as Gandhi, who was (and still is) adored by the world. Check out Berry’s March 8, 2007, letter to the New York Times below where he proves – beyond a reasonable doubt – what the top Nazis ate.
