The Nazi project to speak, read and write to the dogs
Under the leadership of Adolf Hitler, the German Nazi thousands of experiments conducted by who wanted to design a perfect society, tailored to the whims of the Fuhrer.
Among the crazy experiments, was that of achieving a super-breed dogs which had the ability to speak, read and write.
This fact is reflected in the new book by historian and Doctor of the University of Cardiff, Jan Bondeson, entitled "Amazing Dogs: A compilation of canine curiosities."
Hitler was a great lover of dogs and felt a special devotion to his two German shepherd, Blondi and Bella.
After breaking into German political life NSDAP, many were the psychologists and scientists who worked to get the most out of the dogs.
They were convinced that the intelligence of the dogs was, in many cases higher than most humans, except to the 'Aryan race', obviously.
For several years, the Nazis picked up the puppies from all over Germany and subjected to intense training during the 1930's in the Tier-Sprechschule ASRA, a special school for communication between humans and dogs directed by Margarethe Schmitt, in the City Leutenberg.
Among the achievements, Dr. Bondeson's book brings us some examples are striking while almost impossible to believe.
We consider the case of Rolf, a terrier who was able to talk about religion, understand complex mathematical problems and communicate with humans playing with his paw a letter code.
Another dog, Kurwenal supposedly could make jokes like a comic it were, becoming a symbol of the dogs trained by Nazi Germany.
But Hitler's favorite of the whole litter was a dog named Don, who apparently barked, "Mein Fuehrer" in the time when asked who was Adolph Hitler.
