Hitler's musical hypocrisy

Apparently, Adolf enjoyed music played by Jewish musicians and written by Russian composers. After the death of a Russian military officer this summer (who had grabbed the record collection from the Reich headquarters), we learned that someone at HQ had an extensive collection of such work-- despite Hitler viewing these people groups (at least in general) as subhuman and banning their music from being performed in public concerts.

Another misuse of government power to regulate social morality (while the elites did what they wanted) and another reason to despise Hitler. At the end of the day, it was Hitler and his cronies who were subhuman, despite their relatively sophisticated musical tastes.
