Hitler’s fascination with blue eyes and blonde hair is well known. This affection manifested itself in a variety of forms, most notable among all has to be the ‘Final solution’ that gave the world Gas Chambers and Holocaust.

However, few people know about some of the strange atrocities Hitler authorized to further his aim of making the Aryan race dominant in the world.

A huge number of babies were taken into large mansions and luxurious villas to be brought up as true Aryans. This program was christened ‘Lebensborn’ by Hitler.

Initially soldiers were told to mix with the local communities of the occupied territories such as Poland. This resulted in a large number of Polish women getting pregnant with German babies. Both mother and children were then transferred to massive facilities to live an Aryan life.

This method was slow and took quite some while. Nazi Soldiers then resorted to kidnapping and forcibly taking away most Aryan looking babies from their parents in occupied territories.
