Guess What? The Nazis didn't lose the war after all. They won it and flourished. They took over the world and wiped out every last Jew, every last Gypsy, black, East Indiana, and American Indian. Then, when they were finished with that, they wiped out the Russians and the Poles and the Bohemians and the Moravians and the Bulgarians and the Serbians and the Croatians – all the Slavs. Then they stared in on the Polynesians and the Koreans and the Chinese and the Japanese – all the peoples in Asia. This took a long, long time, but when it was over, everyone in the world was one hundred percent Aryan, and they were all very, very happy.

Naturally the textbooks used in the schools no longer mentioned any race but the Aryan or any language but German or any religion but Hitlerism or any political system but National Socialism. There would have been no point. After a few generations of that, no one could have put anything different into the textbooks even if they’d wanted to, because they didn’t know anything different.

But one day two young students were conversing at the University of New Heidelberg in Tokyo. Both were handsome in the usual Aryan way, but one of them looked vaguely worried and unhappy. That was Kurt. His friend said, “What’s wrong Kurt? Why are you always moping around like this?” Kurt said, “I’ll tell you, Hans. There is something that’s troubling me – and troubling me deeply.” His friend asked what it was. “It’s this,” Kurt said. “I can’t shake the crazy feeling that there is some small thing that we’re being lied to about.”
