yes hitlar was a great help to the world because it his act in killing 60 thousand people he created medical cures and operations that help the world as we speak maybe in killing these poeple was wrong but he saved people with his medical operations that in of 60 years made up for also created jobs better ecnomy for germany in that time .

Adolf Hitler ordered the deaths of 11 million people. 6 million Jews and 5 million other ethnic origins were killed in concentration camps. No matter what medical good he could of possibly done, nothing will ever name the harm he did to the world for the common good.

Not a single innocent person should ever be sacrificed for anyone else. In fact, you could probably save 15 people with the parts from one person's body, but that is obviously not good reasoning to do it. If a man cured cancer, but murdered an innocent man during testing in the process, knowing fully well that the man was going to die, does that mean he should be praised for curing cancer or put in jail for murder?

I would like to inform you that this is not about if he was right or wrong this is about if he made the world better or worse.
------Now I'm going to present my case as it were-------
1#
Hitler made better rail roads for trains make transport easier

2#
He made medical cures which we use today that by now we have saved more than tens of thousands.
3#
Made more jobs in Germany

So you could say Hitler helped the world this subject is not about right or wrong.

"1# Hitler made better rail roads for trains make transport easier"

Would you be willing to sacrifice millions of lives, for better transport? Is the net effect of 'better transport' really that much more influential then lives? No it never will be. You could possibly talk about sacrificing lives for lives (AkA war) but, sacrificing lives for better transport? You've lost me there. Not only that, but you have no evidence to support this claim.

"2# He made medical cures which we use today that by now we have saved more than tens of thousands."

Where's your proof of this? It seems to me like you just making it up. And even if you were stating a fact, tens of thousands of people is no where close to the millions he slaughtered.

"3# Made more jobs in Germany"

Are you really saying that because a man made job security, it out weighs the fact that he killed millions of innocent people?

The truth is, is that you have no evidence to support these claims. And even if you could prove them, they still would not out-weigh the bad Hitler brought to the world.

why does hitler receive so much attention? Stalin killed more people than hitler did. there is also the genocide in Rwanda in the 1990's and the 3 pashas during the ottoman empire who killed many political opponents

Once again, joshuaXlawyer rushes into debate without even doing an inch of research in preparation. You just don't learn, do you?

Pro: You need proof Hitler's killing of Jews in Concentration camps led to medical advances. You can't just say it and assume it's 100% correct. Try looking up 'angel of Death'.
Also, Whatever Jobs Hitler made now don't have an impact today. They were mostly for advancing the German war machine

Con: This isn't too hard. Mention the fact the Jewish community is as small as ever, and this led to Israel and such. Mention the Iron curtain, the state of eastern Europe, the people he killed which still effects today. And the KKK
