    Yes Americanization explains the name (there's a reason so many American Jews have the last name black or Irish and Italian last names are spelt differently).

    Thank you @President Earl Warren! Third place is truly an honor, especially as this TL has only been a year old. The love and enthusiasm this TL has received still astonishes me and brightens my day :).

    They’ll appear, and they’re the top three leaders of a German political party.

    Let's remember that the environment we live in ultimately shapes a person.

    TTL Hitler lives in a semi-democratic (I say "semi" because many people of color do not enjoy Constitutional rights) nation with strong checks and balances. OTL Hitler lived in a chaotic, fragile nascent democratic state.

    The ideal government understands that people can and are often corrupted by power.

    TTL Hitler won't be history's greatest monster, but I can imagine he may end up doing some pretty horrific things. In his own time, he maybe remembered as a great Robin Hood. But in the TTL modern day, the enfranchisement of minority groups will force society to see his potentially racist and undemocratic actions.

    OTL, Woodrow Wilson was remembered in his time as a progressive idealists. In the modern day, we are increasingly seeing him as a despicable, racist, wannabe tyrant and imperialist.

    OTL U.S. Presidents have done "horrific shit", so it's more along the lines of that instead of OTL Nazi Germany.

    Hitler disco gif, 2016. The gif was created by internet trolls during a fierce debate on sodomy legalization in Texas. Portraying President Hitler as dancing under a disco insinuates his homosexuality as disco became associated with gay liberation in Western pop culture during the 1970's. The internet gif was not well-received by the Texas Democratic party, condemining it as "unpatriotic, disgusting, and promoting mistruths, whether they be historical or biological". The National Democratic Party affirmed the Texas state unit's position with "while we support freedom of speech, we cannot keep ourselves from condemning such crude attacks upon the greatest president of the 20th century". Comment section netizens responded to the controversy, with one internet user posting, "Lol wtf it's just a joke you overweight middle aged pricks; it's a joke not a dick learn to take one".

    President Hitler in the famous "bizarre giddiness" photo, 19XX. The photo was taken after (no spoilers but important event), a crucial victory for the Hitler administration. A Republican newspaper writer described the photo as "bizarre giddiness in black and white", with the name sticking. Supporters however have transformed bizarre as implying "mystical" or "spiritual". Republicans tended to mock the photo, which Democrats viewed as sour grapes.

    I suppose, but ITTL President Hitler will be a FAR more divisive figure, because he will do things that are both unquestionably good AND terrible evils.

    I think he will be in line of President Woodrow Wilson, support the South, be a Race segregationists and Highly anti-communist and favor American Imperialism.
    I don't know wen he become POTUS, but i guess top one domestic priority are: Jobs, Jobs, Jobs. and his version of "Make America Great Again" after Great Depression will be successful
    I have no idea if there will be big war in TL and during his presidency, but if Japan attack Pearl Harbor may god have mercy with them, because Hitler will be very brutal with them.
    and there is the question after that War (if it happen) the peace conference who deal with rearrangement of the world
    Woodrow Wilson at Paris peace conference lay foundation what happen in 1940-1945, Adolph Hitler will lay the foundation of cold war
    and final verdict on this will have the historians in this TL
