Quite an emotive pic ,on one hand we have a fictitious character invented and carried over for generations to bring joy and happiness to children ( and thus adults ) ,and on the other we have a real person who quite happily marched them into gas chambers .
Sometimes I talk to myself ... and we both have a good laugh

But I don't recall Father Christmas murdering anybody.

It's intersting that these guys believed they were doing the right thing. A side rarely seen are these snapshots of how normal it seemed at the time.
