Churchill And Hitler In Munich....

The core of a man as outlined in this speech with an excerpt following...
When in November 1932, shortly before Hitler came to power, and Churchill was in Munich doing some historical research about the First Duke of Marlborough, his ancestor, an intermediary tried to get him to meet Hitler, who was in Munich at the time and had high hopes of coming to power within months. Churchill agreed to meet Hitler, who was going to come to see him in his hotel in Munich, and said to the intermediary: "There are a few questions you might like to put to him, which can be the basis of our discussion when we meet." Among them was the following question: "What is the sense of being against a man simply because of his birth? How can any man help how he is born?"
Hitler declined to meet with Churchill. Churchill constantly questioned and and pushed back against Nazi racist intentions that were largely ignored by the appeasing European politicos of the time after Hitler gained power in Germany.
