At Garnisch, on the square, I met an American 
from Chicago. He had been at Oberammergau, 
at the Passion Play. "These people are all crazy," 
he said. "This is not a revolution, it's a revival. 
They think Hitler is God. Believe it or not, a 
German woman sat next to me at the Passion 
Play, and when they hoisted Jesus on the cross, 
she said, "There he is. That is our Fuehrer, our 
Hitler." And when they paid out the thirty pieces 
of silver to Judas, she said, "That is Roehm, who 
betrayed the Leader." "Can you beat it?" he said.
