Hitler and Wittgenstein – together at last!

Over on Liberal England is a photo of Hitler and Wittgenstein who were apparently together at school.

Jonathan helpfully explains who Wittgenstein was if you haven’t previously heard of him.  The main reason I had was because there was a nice quote from him in German on a piece of paper over the blackboard in one of the rooms where I was taught A-Level German.

Die Grenzen meiner Spracher bedeuten die Grenzen meiner Welt.  (the limits of my language are the limits of my world.)

I’m torn about whether this photo is more or less exciting than the photo they found in 2006 of Mozart’s wife.
