Washington cleverly tricked congress into paying him obscene amounts of money
Fact: Hitler was a tax evader
Recent research into papers relating to Hitler has uncovered the fact that when he became chancellor of Germany in 1934 he had evaded paying 405,500 million Reichsmarks in tax (6.3 million USD in today’s currency). Fortunately for Hitler, he was forgiven his tax debts when he was elected. It is believed that he earned 1.2 million Reichsmarks for sales of Mein Kampf alone, and avoided paying 600,000 Reichsmarks in tax on it. The official who forgave Hitler’s tax debt was “rewarded” with a 2,000 Reichsmarks per month tax free allowance (a huge amount considering teachers at the time were paid 4,800 per annum).
Maybe one of the World’s craziest and most unapperciated hero’s- Captain Witold Pilecki voluntered to go to Aushwitz concentration camp so that he could spy on what the Germans were doing and report back to the allies. He stayed for 945 days but his reports of the mass killings were not belived untill the war was coming to the end, to top things of he was executed in 1948. Certainly not fair.
