Synopsis
A fictional story which is loosely based upon the post-WWI period when the young Adolf Hitler (1889-1945) was an aspiring painter with a love for the classical periods. Set in 1918, the tale is based on an imagined relationship between young Adolf, and an influential Jewish art dealer and teacher, Max Hoffman, who did not encourage the future Nazi leader's artistic abilities. A discouraged artist, who later scorned modern art, Hitler's interests turn elsewhere--to hatred of Jews, and to Germany's questionable future. The story presents the argument--could one teacher's failure to encourage a young man to pursue his artistic endeavors be part of the root of the terror that came? Would the Holocaust have been prevented if Adolf Hitler had never stopped painting--and thus, was able to channel his creative energy?
