Among the first victims whom Hitler had executed were capitalists.
I posted this article on a message board at a chess site. The same argument is beginning to brew over there. I would love to see some Freepers join in the discussion at the chess site. There are some dedicated socialists adamantly denying the obvious fact that National Socialists *are* socialists. Here's a link:
You can play chess there too if you want to :-)

I've seen so many documentaries and read so many books on WWII that I'm not 100 percent sure where I read about executions of capitalists in Germany, but I believe that it was at the Holocaust Museum in D.C. where I saw the pictures and the captions stating that when Hitler first came to power in 1933, he ordered those whom opposed him and whom he thought might be trouble to be sent to work camps and many of them were shot -- the caption read "ministers, priests, and capitalists." No specific names that I can recall, just pictures of them in the work camp.
