On a recent trip to France, I visited the Normandy, D-day landing beaches of June 6, 1944.

In the nearby town of Caen, the site of fierce Allied fighting, there now stands an excellent WWII museum about the Normandy invasion and the origins of the war.

While touring the museum, this photo caught my eye because I had never seen anything like it — Hitler as a political candidate in the 1932 German presidential election. He was running against Field Marshall Hindenburg.

Give the German voters some credit: Hitler lost that race. However, Hindenburg died two years later and Hitler made his way to power.

As the saying goes, elections have consequences and in this case, even for the loser.
