Can you explain your law in English?



I already did so. Would you prefer German?

Good, 'cuz somehow "die die Antwort" doesn't look right.

"Hitler" wasn't all that uncommon of a name in Austria back then. It meant "someone who lives near an underground river/spring." I suspect that quite a few people got legal name changes after 1945.



Not really. It's a variant of the more common "Hiedler." Alois Hitler, who had been illegitimate, took on the name of his mother's eventual husband (who probably was his father anyway) in adulthood, and nineteenth-century paperwork being what it was, the spelling was corrupted. I don't know of a Hitler, spelled that way, who's not a descendant of Alois.
The trick to poker is learning not to beat yourself up for your mistakes too much, and certainly not too little, but just the right amount.

Was it you, Axel?

Actually, "Hitler," "Heidtler," "Heidler," etc. would all be regional spelling variations of the same name. Even as late as the latter part of the 19th century, in Germany as elsewhere, spelling was not standardized. As in Smith/Schmidt/Schmitt, etc.

Actually, I do speak, read and write German fairly well--but boy, does Google Translate louse things up.

It's actually an OK construct. The first "die" is the relative pronoun (who/that); the second is the definite article (the, feminine). "The person who has the answer" would be in German word order "the person who the answer has"--causing the odd-to-us-sounding juxtaposition of the pronoun and the article.

I still don't think this hitler nazi thing comes up often enough to care about some lame defenses nobody will understand. What have you begun a wikipedia page already for them to look up or for you to cite when they call you "you know who?"
