Today we bring you a fantastic documentary that compares the lives of Charlie Chaplin and Adolf Hitler.

What's so great about this? The coincidences and how world history connects the two (opposites if you want to called them that way) is amazing.

Of course all culminates with the release of the well known Chaplin movie "The Great Dictator", considered by many as a masterpiece. Of course this was a defying moment in history, how someone would dare to mock with the evil Dictator that tormented the world?

It was a brave act by Chaplin no doubt about that. And a message to all humanity.

Would you be interested to know what Hitler thought about this parody movie about his own person? Do you think he hated it? Or he laughed about it, not afraid to make a fool out of himself? Find out with this great documentary.

The coincidences start with the short mustache, and it's curious how two people with relatively similar backgrounds could end up so dramatically different in their adult life. Remember that choices exist so they can be made, make your own choices:
