Controversy is brewing in Germany over an award given to a historian who argues that Hitler’s anti-Semitism had a “rational core.” Ernst Nolte, the historian given the Konrad Adenauer Prize earlier this month, said at the awards ceremony that anti-Semitism made sense because of Hitler’s dislike of Bolshevism, which had wide Jewish support. The prize is given to works that “contribute to a better future.”
