**...it is they who cause the child to become aware of sin.")**  Both Picker and Heim, who made notes of Hitler’s “Table Talk,” where answerable to Bormann (one of the top men in NAZI Germany who wanted to preserve Hitler’s words for “posterity“). There can be little doubt that both Picker and Heim “softened,” and intellectualized, Hitler’s vocabulary. Furthermore, most translations, including mine, of Hitler’s Tischgesprache into the English version of “Table Talk“ or “Secret Conversations” have been very kind to Hitler. Understanding Hitler’s personality and the way he talked in private, a more appropriate English translation of this sentence would probably read: “When our piggish priests question a seven year old child in the confessional about sin, it is through such depraved methods that these shit-heads cause the child to become aware of sin.” Picker 107, also see Secret Conversations 310.

...his half brother and later forbade all mention of his name. Maser 27
