Would you take the money?

I just read a fascinating article about the possibility of Hitler having a secret love child. One of the points the article makes is that if it's proven, his heirs could get royalties on Mein Kampf.

Would you be willing to take the money from that book?

On one hand, I know that the publishers are profiting off of it, so why not get a share? But I don't know if I could actually take the money. Maybe get the money and give it to charity? I don't know. I guess I'm surprised that there even ARE royalties, and that the Jewish community hasn't been given that money for reparations as has been done with other Nazi profits.

What do you think?

I would, without hesitation or second thought, then turn most, if not all, over to charity. It would be the only way to insure any monies from the book would go to help families and a culture the Third Reich tried to destroy. It would also heighten awareness that that particular evil is still out there; we sometimes grow complacent about that.

Ramona, that's a great point. And something I've considered. You're right about complacency... it would be good to use the money to bring awareness.
